Gradient Skewing

Hello All  ;D

I am having a problem understanding the gradient vector skewing/movement... I am trying to recreate an InDesign file from an IDML file that I imported and the vector gradients did not hold.  In the InDesign dialog all that is needed is a degree angle from a base point, mine was 120degree.  I forgot to upload the files so I could show a sample here, I will try and remember to do it tomorrow.  Just any basic guidance to start with would be of help to me.  BTW, kudos to the IDML import, only got about 70% of the file correct, but it was enough of a starting point that only about 25 minutes of fixes saw everything done except these gradients and bevel emboss filter from Indesigns picture frame filter... which I am looking into g'mic filters to see if I can recreate.

Thanks.

a.l.e:
if you are using a "modern" 1.5.x, can you please upload the idml file to the bug tracker?

explaining what went wrong...

if you mark the ticket as private, only the developers will be able to see the file.

mnawij:
Yes I am using 1.5.2 on OSX 10.9.5 and I will upload it soon.

I've just started looking at Blend for Visual Studio and was reminded of this thread.

I think it would be great if we could have a gradient tool like that shown in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G05Q4zSBOY8&list=PLBDF977B2F1DAB358&index=8 (skip to around 2 minutes 20 seconds). It looks basic at first but then the features shown - from around 3m40s - look really useful (and this is just a UI building tool!).

Apologies for "thread crashing" but I thought it might be of interest to someone.

mnawij:
+1 to GarryP, the gradient tool needs work... It is not intuitive enough for designing IMHO and needs much more flexibility.
