This is part 2 of yesterday's gradient post that is now locked. I just want to mention a couple more things that I didn't get a chance to do. Matt, My problem is I will often make a colour in the middle and then realize it needs to go on the end. Right now I am working on an illustration where I need three shades for the same colour. A darker part for the shadows and a brighter spot for the highlights. The way I have been doing it is I start with the midrange colour and then drag it to one end for the highlight and then to the other side for the shadow but the way it is set up now you can't really do that. When you drag one colour to the end the previous colour at the end still stays there and it is very difficult to delete the original end colour. I found that I end up having to recreate the colours on the ends. This should be a quick drag and drop procedure with just a slight alternation to the colour's brightness. One way to do this would be if the middle colour could replace the colour at the end but then there might be some instances where you wanted to keep the end colour too. It would be nice if we could converse on this issue a little before closing it please. There might be some compromise between what I am saying and what you are saying. I can understand what you were trying to do with the canvas bar maybe we can figure something out. It is the only area I have come across in Affinity Designer that acts clunky. Just about every other feature in the program seems to be executed fantastically.
I was reading up in the help file on using gradients and it said that I could drag the end points of a gradient but when I tried to do this nothing moves.
