in the instructions there is a gradient tab. i don't have it. its hard to explain.

Not sure what's happening here. If you click off the object, yes the gradient slider will disappear. Just select the Gradient Tool again and the slider will reappear.

 

Choose the gradient colour box, top left (after the word Linear) and click on it. You'll see the gradient options for changing those colours. Click the circle at either end to change the colour. Make sure your object is selected first!

 

Hope this makes sense.

leonahussey,

Affinity Designer is a complete new program and we are all learning it from scratch... 

It's natural sometimes we get a bit lost with something. 

It may not even be our fault but some bug somewhere crippling something...

With time we all get there :)
