[ Resolved ]Amending gradient on line / stroke - Designer iPad

Recommended Posts

Really struggling with this one. Questions:

(Designer - iPad)

  1. How should you apply gradients to line / stroke? ( The only way I was able to achieve the illustration below was by selecting a gradient in the swatches panel/colour studio).
  2. How do you then amend the gradient?

Every time I select the gradient tool, it deselects the line.

Thank you

illustration below should make it clear what I’m trying to do.

Your screenshot shows that you have the fill button selected (at the top left-hand side of the Context toolbar). Tap on the button below that to select the stroke instead.

New attached... questions the same...

If I next select the gradient tool, the stroke gets deselected and we end up at the 1st screenshot

Thanks @Alfred

Interesting... just checked in the Desktop version of Designer. In there, it behaves exactly the same... just going to double check the help on this.

Here’s what I get with the fill button selected:777E0196-100C-47CB-B530-59D6031960D7.jpeg.e5b707e397973d5dfb6f458353941fa7.jpeg
 

And this is what I see when I switch to the stroke button:E2F8F41A-3908-4D8B-81E1-DFD39CD2A0D5.jpeg.21b025b470e6737d99befcc440a592ce.jpeg

I can now simply tap on the existing nodes to amend them, or tap somewhere in between to add new nodes.

O-o-o-oh, for flippin 'eck, @Alfred. It was staring me in the face!!

I was totally focussed at the top of the screen on the Colour Studio... duh, doh. Though I did uncheck "Aspect" at the bottom... and those two buttons totally passed me by.

Thank you again @Alfred, what would I do without you, mate? I'm cooking wi' gas now!

I was just editing my last post when Alfred sorted me out. I was recording that when choosing the gradient tool, the bounding box disappearing is normal. It had thrown me though, and sent me off down a rabbit hole.
