How do you use the eyedropper in the gradient tool?

Recommended Posts

I want to create a gradient from gold to red and back to the same gold. I have got as far as pulling down the gradient pull-down dialogue, setting three points and making the first gold and the second red, but for the third one I need to use the eyedropper to select the same gold I selected earlier. And that's where I get stuck. I would have thought that clicking on the eyedropper in the colour selection part of the gradient dialogue would have enabled me to pick a colour, but all that happens if I do that is that the gradient dialogue disappears as soon as I click outside it and then I am no longer able to adjust the gradient. What am I supposed to do?
