hi frdt

I create a texte box…

just a rectangular shape would be the better choice…

a linear gradient is exactly what you're searching for. try 'move vector'.

hi frdt
  • select ‚gradient’ and ‚linear’
  • click one of the triangles and select the desired color and shade (repeat this step with the other triangle and create more of them if needed…)
  • click ‚move vector’ and move the magenta colored handles around the canvas or edit the values in the ‚gradient vector’ window
