gradient only in black and white?

gradient only in black and white?

for some reason when i use teh gradient tool, it is only in black and white.. when i try to change the color of hte gradient, it converts it to grayscale.. but everything else in illustrator works fine in color. can anyone help me? thanks

RE: gradient only in black and white?

Select one of the gradient stop - then from the color palette select CMYK for color mode and make color. Do the same for the ending stop.


RE: gradient only in black and white?

RE: gradient only in black and white?

oh and also, the "K" of the cmyk is the only adjustable number.. the other bars arent even there

RE: gradient only in black and white?

They will be - you'll only see the K bar - then click the little arrow on the Color palette to change to cmyk mode. Then you'll see the C - M - and Y

RE: gradient only in black and white?
