Help! 
Please help, I'm having trouble trying to add gradient color to text in Adobe Illustrator on iPad. I did it once, but can't seem to do it again. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Been trying to figure it out all day! I select the text, press color, then gradient doesn't show up like it does when nothing is selected.

You have to outline the text first in Illustrator on the iPad.

There are a couple things you must do to create gradient text.

 

1. Create the text.

2. Outline the text.

3. Select the text group, open the color picker, and choose gradient (at the top next to solid color, see screen shot below). Then choose the gradient type (linear, radial, mesh).

4. Select the group to see all the gradient stop controls, or choose the individual letters from the layers panel to see one at a time.

5. Alternately: Ungroup the object. After ungrouping, select all the letters and make a single compound path to create one entity that is the entire word.This would allow you to have one gradient across the full word, rather than a separate gradient for each letter.

I running into this same issue as the user above. I've tried both methods and as soon as I click on the color wheel, the gradient will pop up to half a second then it disappears completely. Any other advice? Is is a glitch for this version?  I've been struggling all day with this.
