reverse radial gradient

Postby geon » Mon May 26, 2008 9:26 pm

How to reverse default radial gradient, so that zero opacity is in the middle and full color is at the edge?

Make your radial gradient first, highlight the object and select the gradient tool to expose the gradient handles, then shift+r to reverse it.

Is there also an icon/button so I could do this by mouse only? I got some students which prefer mouse ....

Thanky you

P.S. I know, its an old thread, but its mine, anyway ;-)

I also prefer mouse (poor memory, can't remember keyboard shortcuts). But in this case, I haven't found any other method besides Shift + r.

And there are several other things that I've found for which I prefer keyboard shortcuts. EG - moving objects exactly horizontally or vertically using arrow keys. That's for short distances. I think there's another key that you can use with the mouse to restrict movement along x or y. But as you might guess, I don't remember what it is at the moment :roll:

Use Shift + arrow keys to move selection by 10x nudge distance

Use Ctrl + mouse drag to restrict movement to horizontal or vertical.
