When trying to create a linear gradient the slider adjustment has no effect on the pixel layer which the gradient has been applied to. I don't recall this happening before, is this a bug or expected behaviour?

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

These are not my own words but I sure like this quote.

Not sure what's going on but I suspect it might have something to do with the Mid Point set to 0%.

This. The gradient is working as expected with this settings. It's white to 50% grey, as average of white to black, from 0 to 0, then smoothly grading to 100% black.

Quite right. The adjustment works on all the other gradient styles but does not work on the linear gradient.

Hello @AffinityJules.

Try disenable the OpenGL, then it should work again .

Thanks for that - just tried it and it works again.

What an odd thing this hardware accelerator is! Some things work with it while others do not.
