Very clever! I never thought about using two adjacent gradient stops for this ... that is how you did it, right?

This probably would cause some oddities for svg exports but otherwise it seems like a good alternative to using two shapes & trying to get everything aligned.

Use 2 shapes with different colours

 

Add a rectangle bigger than the shape

 

Use the rectangle as the mask for the top shape

 

Easy to align and you can rotate the rectangle (mask) if you want a non horizontal change of colour

To save time I am currently using an automated AI to reply to some posts on this forum. If any of "my" posts are wrong or appear to be total b*ll*cks they are the ones generated by the AI. If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.

Good example of use of masks, and easily modifiable.

It would actually be better to nest the rectangle below the cog and thus the cog acts as a mask for the rectangle 

you can nest further elements into the cog and thus get very flexible set of "fills"

 

thus you only have one cog shape and this makes modifications much easier 

 

 

cheers
