    Gradient Tool not working properly.

    Xoph

      My Gradient Tool no longer shows the Gradient Tool Annotator over a selected object. Did I turn something off that I don't know about? Recently updated my CS5 version to try and fix but no luck. Thanks!

          Is the object part of a live paint group?

          Then it would be normal.

           

          Otherwise try the view menu: Show gradient annotator

            The gradient annotator can be tricky to get to appear, this question is often asked.

             

            1. View >> Show Gradient Annotator
            2. Hit (G) to choose the gradient tool from tools, will not show if you have another tool selected
