Gradient not blending properly

I'm always working with these two colors which blend together well. However, when I try to make a gradient with the two, I get this faded white right in the middle of the two colors. But when I use the blend option, it works and looks just how I want it to. 

 

I could just always use the blend option but it's just a couple extra steps compared to using the gradient tool which is much easier to use and manipulate. Am I doing something wrong with the gradient tool? Or is this just how it works?

Hi Joel,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I'd recommend checking out  https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/gradients.html for more information about Gradients and how you can create them using different options.

 

Hope it helps.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Hi,

In my environment there is no difference between blend and gradient. I think there are some problems in your environment.

Hmm, that's strange. Thank you though for the clarification! I'll check that out on my end!

Honeslty I still haven't found one except now I just have the corrected gradient saved in my libraries so I just drag it in everytime I need to use it and it's fine. Another option that works is once the gradient (with the white still in the middle) is made, I click just inside the gradient colors to create a new color and then delete the old ones and then the gradient looks how it should. Hope this helps!
