I make a gradient and drag it to the swatches palette and name it.
If I want to edit it I select it and make a change in the gradient palette but the instant I touch anything the gradient is no longer selected and my edits can only be saved by creating a new swatch. I will have too many swatches this way.
So how does one edit an existing gradient swatch?
Thanks for any help.
Yeah. Intuitive, isn't it? If you doubleClick a Grad Swatch, the Edit Swatch dialog opens, which does not provide Gradient sliders.
Edit the grad in the grad palette. Press and hold Alt while you drag it from the grad palette and drop it onto the existing Swatch.
