    Gradient feather: sharp edge?

    hoggehog

      Hey guys!

       

      I'm having trouble getting a nice gradient feather in InDesign. I can't get a smooth transition. Since I'm doing this to make some black text readable, I have moved the gradient stop to whiten a bigger area (this is what's causing the issue).

       

      Am I not supposed to do this in InDesign? Should I prepare a gradient in Illustrator instead? It's very time consuming having to do everything in other programs.

       

      You can clearly see a sharp edge "hiding" in the transition here (on my screen it's even more visible):

      This is my settings:

      Anyone got any ideas?
