We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Creating a custom shape with the pen tool and applying gradient. Seems like it is missing control handles.
But it works just fine on any other rectangle, circle, triangle, etc.
Thank you for reaching out and sorry to hear that you're having trouble using gradient inside a path. This is a known bug and the team is already working on it. You will definitely see the improvements in the future releases of XD.
We're sorry for the inconvenience.
Thank you for reaching out, we are aware of this issue and the team is already working on it. As a workaround, you may import/export paths from Illustrator with the desired gradient.
When are we expecting this to be fixed? Gradient controller doesn't show on mine. I also tried exporting path from AI and still doesn't work.
We can't give an estimate as to when the bug will be fixed, but it's definitely on our radar. We'll make sure to update this thread when we get this resolved.
This problem has existed for a long time, please fix it as soon as possible
i have still the bug
is very hard to work!!!
As a possible workaround you can create a rectangle, adjust the gradient and mask it with your custom shape. Adobe please fix this soon...
I can confirm your bug. The workaround is to create regular shape and then create a custom shape from that regular shape. I try that and gradient widget appears on right place. That is not a solution , but it helps
We are sorry for the delay in response. It looks like you are experiencing a similar issue mentioned here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/adobe-xd/missing-gradient-control-handles-on-custom-shape/m-p/1168910...? If so, then the team is already aware of the issue and almost ready with the fix. You will definitely see the improvements in the future releases of XD. In the meantime, I would suggest trying the workaround suggested by Ares or on the correct answer of the above post shared.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
