You didn't I suppose, save the gradient as a swatch? if not, and you've made changes to the stops (as opposed to leaving the gradient panel alone and just dragging the gradient tool in the document) I think you're out of luck.
Any chance you have a backup version of the file?
Hi Peter and Larry,
I actually do have it saved as a swatch, but if I try to drag it back over the object, it still keeps whatever I did while using the gradient tool.
It's like I need to reset the box property or something?
I ever tried to take most of the settings off of the eye dropper and then created a dummy object with the gradient pulled from the swatch panel intact in an effort to pick it up and put in my other object that is now distorted, and still no luck?
In Illustrator I do believe you can reset the gradient back to normal as this has come up in the past, but I do not see this option in InDesign.
And to Larry, of course there is no back up LOL
Select the object, apply a solid fill, then choose the gradient swatch.
AH Peter... You beat me to it! Just did that before leaving the office but didn't have time to post till now.
THank you! That works
