This may be a stupid question, BUT how do you get gradients for text (Adobe InDesign) to go north - south instead of east - west? Up and down instead of left to right? I cannot figure it out, but Im sure it can be done?! Thanks!
Double click the gradient box on your toolbox, or go to windows>gradient. after that click on the little triangle circle on the top right of the gradient palette, and choose show options....after that you should be able to adjust gradient direction
go to the tool palette. Select the gradient tool (it's the one above the scissors).
Click and hold the mouse button where you want the gradient to start, hold the mouse button while you drag the curser to where you want the grade to end. You will see a line connecting the start point to your curser. The gradient you created will be squashed into that line. You can start and stop it anywhere.
Play with it
PrintDriver, that worked, Im a moron, I kept trying to figure it out using the gradient pulldown menu (Im on a PC BTW with InDesign CS) so on the triangle/cirlce button thing there is no show options, only hide options, but I got it, thanks!
