I understand that making a rectangle in object drawing mode
and then filling that rectangle with a gradient fill that I can
then rotate that fill using the Gradient Transform Tool. The
problem is it is out of control when I select the corner rotate
handle: It does not constrain to 90 degrees when I hold the shift
key down and the indicators that show the rotate angle on the stage
disappear off the screen in a strange fashion.
Something is wrong but I've never used this feature before
and wondered if someone with experience using edits to gradient
fills in Flash could set me straight.
