Gradients in Designer always greyscale and always cover the whole canvas

Recommended Posts

In Designer I want to colour a rectangle with a gradient of a certain colour, but no matter what colour I choose, the gradient always ends up in greyscale, and no matter how much I try to select the particular rectangle I want to colour, the gradient always ends up covering the whole canvas. What am I doing wrong?

Is the 'particular rectangle' made with one of the Shapes tools or the Pen tool? I am having no problem using the Gradient tool with these shapes. Is the rectangle a pixel layer?

Are you using the fill (gradient) tool or the gradient overlay in the layer effects?  I recommend using the fill tool.  Are you trying to figure out how to do it, or do you know how and are experiencing problems?
