Can't Delete Gradient Nodes

(1/2) > >>

DavidBrennan:
Is there a way to delete a single Gradient value in the colors?  It is very easy to add new Gradient nodes, but I cannot see a way to delete them. 

utnik:
hi david

just drag the little triangles away…

GarryP:
One small point that I'd add is that two of the triangles can't be dragged away because Scribus always needs two gradient stops.

These two stops don't look any different to the others that you add and the only way you can find out which they are is when you can't drag them away.

It's a trivial point but it can be confusing when you first notice it.

(I added an issue about this http://bugs.scribus.net/view.php?id=10714 last year.)

this is a good point – but it looks like it has been solved – at least it's clear now, wich ones can't be removed…
 
in scribus1.4.3 always the two triangles near the edges are fixed. it doesn't matter if they are set manually or not. i can live with that. but the best way would be to set all of them removable until there are only two remaining…

GarryP:
Hi utnik.

Sorry but I'm using 1.4.3 (on OSX) and the problem hasn't been fixed, it's just been changed.

Here's a workflow to try:
* Create shape.
* Select "Horizontal Gradient"
* Drag left-hand stop to middle.
* Add new stop to the left of the middle stop.
* New left-hand stop can't be dragged away, but…
* Drag middle stop to the left of the left-hand stop.
* Left stop can be now dragged away.

And the same happens when you do the same as above but on the right instead.

So you still can't know whether a stop can be dragged away without trying it. Therefore, to me, the problem still exists.

I agree with you that all stops should be removable until you're down to two. That would make much more sense.

(P.S. I can live with this too, it just might be annoying for people who don't know what's happening.)
