Creating a custom shape with the pen tool and applying gradient. Seems like it is missing control handles.2.png

 

 

 

But it works just fine on any other rectangle, circle, triangle, etc.

Hi Graphict, 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.  Thanks, Atul_Saini

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.

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.

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

Hi Aneesh,

 

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.
