Represented in black and white when selecting colors in gradient tools.

Applying gradient to an object basically allows it to select two colors. If I choose one color by using color picker from there, it expressing in black and white in the gradient. If I reboot the program or return from another operation, express the correct color for the previous operation again. Usually, the program needs to be rebooted before it can be resolved. What's the matter with this?

Check that your colour mode is not set to grayscale:

In addition, this problem seems to occur randomly. Or maybe I'm not good at using tools.

Thank you for your answers. This temporarily solved the problem mentioned. However, if I close the program and turn it on again, then apply the gradient, it will be expressed in black and white mode again. Is there no way to set the default value by RGB mode?

The default gradient is back and white.

Don't use the color picker (for several reasons).

Just use the gradient panel or the gradient annotator to define colors.

I'm having the same problem.  I can't get the gradient tool to do anything but black & white.  I can't find the gradient control panel anywhere to look and see if I have it set on grayscale.  This is a NEW problem.  I've used Photoshop for years and NEVER had this happen.  This problem just started yesterday. I'm also on a deadline!!!  I'm on Windows, set to classic Gradient,.

I've looked for the Swatch Library and I cannot find it to be able to modify it. Something changed from Photoshop yesterday and now I'm screwed!

This is the Illustrator forum, and it looks like you have a problem with Photoshop gradients.
