How to change angle in Gradient Stroke?

Recommended Posts

With the help of @toltec you have probably already discovered this, but you can change the angle of gradient stroke fills on the canvas in the same way you would for gradient fills: with the Fill tool selected & set to the stroke context, click on a color stop & drag it to wherever you want. You can also experiment with the different fill types (linear, elliptical, conical, etc.) to get different effects, like in this simple Gradient Strokes.afdesign example.

This would be miles better if the Gradient tool recognised that the user was in stroke editing mode and editing a stroke rather than always defaulting to Fill and needing to be changed to stroke in order to edit the stroke's gradient. Perhaps renaming the tool to just "gradient" rather than fill gradient would help discoverability, too.

This.

First I think this behavior is a bug in Publisher, not a feature. It makes no sense at all.
