The graduated filter is not functioning properly. I can access it, load up the information that I want on the filter and as soon as I place the + sign on the image, it will not activate; completely non-functional at this point. I have selected different images and the outcome is the same. I have use the Reset button to no avail and all the rest of my tools are operating properly.
To put a grad filter on the image you not to not just click but click and drag while holding the click. This will set the location of the filter and the extent of the transition zone.
