Struggling to get a gradient to appear across multiple objects within a group.

Have experimented with removing sub-groups and changing stroke settings etc.. no difference.

See attachment, the items should be mostly red, but instead, they're showing as just the Yellow.


Have tried multiple restarts and on multiple laptops with different installs, (but both 1.6.1)

Hi BennoFG,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Please adjust slightly the direction and length of the gradient handle on canvas. It should update the gradient as soon as you select one of the handles on canvas. To do it: select the group layer, change to the Gradient Tool, - you should now see the gradient handles (controls) over the objects on canvas - drag them to adjust/update the gradient on canvas.


Seems there's an issue here preventing the gradient from updating on canvas to reflect the changes made in the gradient tab on the stroke width pop-up in certain circumstances. I will log this to be looked at.
