Why can't I move the edited gradient swatch into the folder I created within the swatch menu?
I'm using Adobe Illustrator 2017.
Color groups work cross application. And gradients aren't compatible across applications.
If you want to make a feature request, please tell the engineers.
If you want to just vent, then maybe you don't want to do that to people who aren't even staff. We on the forums can't change anything.
Well, I hope they fix it soon, because I can tell you're frustrated too
Wanted to add that you also cannot move
if you have a gradient swatch selected and click on the new color group icon you will see this error. They really should make that error pop up if you drag as you were doing, as myself included lost a lot of time trying to figure this out in the past.
Is there a reason why it can not be done?
It looks like they deliberately made this impossible since it is different from the normal swatches so I wonder if there is a specific reason for it.
