Cannot access Gradients

Recommended Posts

1. Create a new (pixel) layer

2. Use gradient tool

3. With gradient tool still active, go to color selector on the top bar.

4. Notice you can select solid colors, you can change collections, but you can't choose any gradient.

5. You cannot edit the gradient themselves too, you can only choose the solid colour

They have change ti (and not for the better)

After steps 1-3 you can click on the white or black dots and  change their colors;

On the main gradient lin you can drag the sliders to adjust what the gradient affects AND click on the line to add a new color point which can now be selected and adjusted on the tool bar

You can use the color wheel on the right too instead of the tool bar. Play with it a bit

It dies work now

Ah, I see now. This works quite fine for my needs, for some it's even better (I'm not using this tool often, so just minor readjustment for me).

Still, the part where I can't select a stored gradient is a really bad option right now.

You can select a stored gradient. Simply deselect any nodes with the gradient tool (by clicking away from the line) and you get the fill popup on the context bar. (As opposed to the colour popup you get when a tool node is selected).

Thank, to think of it, it kinda makes sense, but kinda doesn't.

Also, when changing gradint colours it changes gradient type back to linear, not cool, if you ask me.
