    Transforming a radial gradient

    Steve Fairbairn Level 5

      There seems to be something wrong with the Scale and Free Transform tools when they are used to transform radial gradients.

      I made a circular radial gradient, grey in the middle and white at the edge.

      When I try to stretch it horizontally, only the container distorts but the gradient remains circular, producing nasty hard edges at the top and bottom.

      But if I try to stretch it vertically I get normal results. So I have to scale vertically and then rotate 90°to get what I want.


      Nothing about this in the Help files and the results are the same whether I use the Scale or the Free Transform tool.

      Has anyone else had this problem?


      CS3 by the way.
