I need help with color selecting and it's relation to gradient fills. I will only ask 2 questions here, for now.
I'm in a document that has numerous Rectangle frames in the background. I'm in the middle of designing a brochure. I'm not set on colors I've used but in each background Rectangle, I used a simple gradient fill. It comprises 1 color fading to white. By the time I reached the 27th page, I decided to change a color (in a simple gradient) back to a grey (in a gradient) I used on page 1. But, I have a long list of warm and cool greys and can not, for the life of me, figure out which grey I originally used. When I highlight the original rectangle and go to the gradient function, it shows the grey and the white tab levers. But, unlike Photoshop, when I double click on the tab, no info on which pantone color I used, is revealed. In Photoshop, you simply double click on the lever/tab and the Pantone, in the long list of colors, is highlighted.
1. How do I determine, more easily than going through all the greys, which grey I originally used in the gradient on Page 1? (or any page or color)
2. How can I simply make a new rectangle and drop, inside it, a gradient I already have on another page?
1. Have the Swatches Panel open along with the Gradient Panel, select the end stop, and that color should be highlighted in the Swatches Panel.
2. Select an object with the desired gradient. Grab the gradient block in the upper left corner of the Gradient Panel and drag it to the Swatches Panel adding it to the list. Apply this swatch to any object.
Thank you, it's always simpler upon inspection.
