Affinity Designer Gradient Tool = WTF?

Recommended Posts

Dear people,


How do I use the linear gradient tool, if I want to fill a shape from top to bottom? The gradient only goes from side to side and I can't adjust the settings so that it goes from top to bottom.

Hi doodleskull,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Select the shape, select the Fill Tool then drag from top to bottom over the shape on canvas to set the direction. Press and hold ⇧ (shift) to constrain the direction to horizontal/vertical and diagonal axis (45º). If you need to adjust the direction or position of the gradient nodes use the node gradient handles on canvas.
