Where is gradient editor in PSP X?

Where is gradient editor in PSP X?

Where is gradient editor in PSP X?

Thank heavens for Tek-Tips.  Corel no longer support version X, though you have to spend 30 minutes typing stuff into boxes before they tell you that.  I wasn't aware that Tek Tips had a PSP Forum, but thanks to Google I do now, and can ask my simple questions of people who are actually prepared to be helpful, as I know from other Tek-Tips forums.

OK, I've used PSP since it was on Windows 3, but only for photo editing - must be 50,000+ of them now. I stopped upgrading when the upgrades Corel encouraged me to try didn't work and screwed up my working installation when removed.  Suddenly I now find I need to produce a graphic for my website, a simple vertical narrow bar starting with a dark colour at the top and fading to a light colour at the bottom.  The Help tells me, in the briefest of terms, what to do, using the gradient editor, click New and so on. I suspect it is not so simple.  But before I can start, please just where do I find the elusive gradient editor?  I've found all sorts of previously undiscovered things, but nothing with a "New".

Told you the question was simple!  I have no (serious) complaints about PSP's performance as a photo editor but I'd best keep the words that come to mind about the Help to myself.

Thanks in advance

RE: Where is gradient editor in PSP X?

Please forget my question: I just found the gradient editor.  

Materials palette - gradient tab.

Click the foreground or background colour displays - the bigger ones with the little icons below.  This brings up the Material Properties box.  

Click the centre tab: "Gradient".  The button marked "Edit" under the box that shows the current gradient takes you to the Editor.  And yes, it does have a "New" button.

If you look in the Help under "To choose a gradient" rather than "To create a gradient" (which is what I thought I needed to do) it is explained under "You can also..." how to find and use the editor to edit a pre-existing gradient. I wasn't aware I had any gradients to edit, until now :)
