    Default Can't change gradient color

    My gradient will only allow me to change colors - defaults to a white to black fill. Everything else in my project is changeable to whatever color I want.

    Kevin,

    The default gradient is grayscale color mode, but to change that, click on the white color box and go to Color palette and click options arrow (upper right) and change to color mode (CMYK/RGB) and then from color palette choose the color you wish. Do the same thing with the black gradient color box. Now you can simply use the color palette to the various boxes (you can add more colors, of course) to equal more than two gradient colors.

    Same problem, but different solution is needed.

    Clicking on any color just removes the gradient, and replaces it with just that solid color. When I go to the Palette options, it's already in RGB (switching to CMKY does nothing positive for me).

    Under the gradient options, the only option available is "hide options."

    I'd use MS Paint, but my work paid for Adobe, so we have to use it.
