How do I select a different color for a gradient?
Posted on 2008-10-13
Here's my issue:
I'm very used to Adobe Photoshop and I'm just learning Illustrator. The gradient seems to be different. I have set a color for the dark portion of the gradient and a color for the lighter portion of the gradient. I find that only being able to select colors from the SWATCHES is highly limiting.
My question is:
I need to select the gradient I have currently for a box I have drawn on the art board. I need to make the gradient slightly lighter brown than it already is. How exactly should I accomplish this?
I'm used to double clicking on a color and it would bring up a very detailed COLOR PICKER. Selecting from the SWATCHES menu isn't enough options for me.
Can someone tell me how to properly set a gradient using any color I want and then editing it to any color I want?
