    Curves and gradients

    Sussex_Tech
      Hey all
      Please enlighten me to how you apply a colour gradient to follow a curve?
      I want to draw a curve, then have the colour beneath it fade into the background colour but following the line rather than just linera fading. CAn anyone help please?
      Thanks very much

          Have you tried the 'Contour' gradient? I've used it with limited success.

            Maybe one way is to create the background fill as you wish it to appear
            and then add the line as a clipping mask?
