    I find it strange that there is no "OK" button on the simplified view. I like the addition that you can weight colours, it stumps me and I don't know how you recommend that the dialog shold be exited. It seem to work OK, and I am glad the legacy dialog is there and that I can coohse the legacy setting as the default.

    The similarity to the Colour Theme panel is also a little confusing.

    Would be nice to have some way to wight colours even in the advanced dialog, but I guess that is when I drag swatches to a row, and that's fine.

    Sorry for my previous answer. Seeing the demo makes a big difference. Yes it is defiantly a bug/limitation.
    When rotating a stroke with multiple gradient strokes if no stroke is selected in the appearance only the gradient on the bottom stroke is rotated with the shape. If you select another stroke in the appearance stack, then that stroke will rotate with the selection, but as you say it will only rotate one stroke when the shape is rotated (if no stroke is selected in the appearance pannel or multiple objects are selected it will rotate the bottom stroke, in each object). This problem also persists grouping several of these strokes. Expanding line to shape does not help either. Only killing the shape by expanding appearance allows the line to rotate with multiple gradient strokes to rotate all the strokes.

    (After further testing after seeing the video I understand this comment was wrong)
    I suspect it is not an error, it is dependant if the object or the path is selected. switch to the Selection arrow to make sure the objects are selected before rotating. If you only rotate the path the gradients will not follow.

    Converting text to outlines takes much of the smart programming in fonts and throws it away. Fonts have technology called hinting which tells computers and rips how to handle mathematic calculations so that strokes and spacing are consistent. If you convert text to curves you only have the vector points. If you also started the document as a webb document you may get even more strange effects if strokes are aligned to pixel grid. It may be a limitation of workflow rather than of software.

    Recolour Artwork is used to change colour scheme

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Select a Freeform Gradient
    2. Try to recolour artwork

    Actual Result:
    Nothing happens.

    Expected Result::
    Same behaviour as other objects
