Hi there,

 

When trying to adjust the angle/direction of a gradient that is inside a Live Paint Group, I am no longer able to edit/change the direction of the gradient by completing the following stpes (which previously would work in earlier versions of Illustrator):

 

• Use Live Paint Selection Tool to select the segment inside of a Live Paint Group

• Switch to the Gradient Tool

• Drag to edit/change direction of gradient

 

The gradient indicators on the cursor do not show up, nor does dragging change/edit the direction of the gradient. I am currently working with version 25.4.1.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

It is a current bug.

For some reason Adobe staff believe it has been fixed, but it certainly hasn't:
