P: Implement ability to reverse Linear Gradients without needing to invert them.

Nov 15, 2023 Nov 15, 2023

Copied

The feature request is simple:

• I suggest to be able to reverse our Linear Gradients without needing to use "Invert"

The advantage of this is that the state of our Liner Gradient(s) won't change.

Current method

Suggested

Tis a small thing but I propose anyway.

I clearly do not understand. I am probably not understanding the difference or perhaps meaning of Inverse vs Reverse. Can you elaborate.

I suspect you are not talking directly about Inverse as both a prompt, and a shortcut exist for that, as seen below

Also, you may want to post different example, These old eyes see no difference in the two screenshots you posted.

In my Inverse case:

@GoldingD

Reverse would achieve the same results as the Inversion BUT without changing the "state" of Linear Gradient so without doing  MaskInverted = true

It's done by swapping the internal coordinates of the Linear Gradient.

ZeroX <-> FullX

ZeroY <-> FullY

The advantage of this simple method is that we keep the current "state" of the gradient.

e.g.

If a gradient is in a Subtract state by reversing it it says subtracted while currently with Invert it becomes an Intersection.

Tis the same result but I think more users would prefer to simply reverse a linear gradient than use Invert that adds more complexity when working.

P.S.

I would have done a scrip/plug-in myself and swaps the values of the Linear gradient myself but I am not advanced enough to do it.

@johnrellis can probably do it.
