I am trying to create a gradient swatch to fill a rectangle on a brochure but it wont let me select a beginning stop color. Is there a process I am missing? I go to the swatches menu in the top right corner of my document, then select create new gradient swatch, and begin to set parameters for my gradient but it's only in grey-scale and wont let me choose colors. Is this even the best to accomplish this task?
In the dropdown for Stop Color make sure you choose CMYK or RGB to begin the process.
The drop down box nect to Stop-color is greyed-out and wont let me drop down to select the color scale.
Click on one of the stops first, then select the Stop Color mode from the dropdown.
