    How To Create Gradient Horizontally, Top to Bottom

    DDmUSA

      Within Illustrator CS4, I created a rectangle.

       

      Is it possible to fill the rectangle using a gradient with the gradient occurring from the top of the rectangle towards the bottom edge, essentially having long strips of color from left to right within the rectangle?

       

      It appears that the gradient tool fills in the rectangle using vertical bars, and I would like to have long horizontal strips.

       

      Is there some way to rotate the fill so the gradient happens in the other direction?
