I went from Flash CS6 to Flash CC and now the brush/gradient interaction is different.
In CS6, I could have a gradient on the stage, and if I went I (ink drop) then B (brush) I could start "painting" with the exact same gradient position and settings. This allowed me to change the shape of gradients with ease, like flat colors.
Now, when I select the gradient, all new brush strokes have an entirely new generic gradient position (but with the same color). To line it up properly I have to then I(ink drop) then K(bucket drop) the color onto the brush I just painted.
I want this to work like it did in CS6. How to I fix this?
