Gradient in editable text

Post by Jiri Melnicky » 09 May 2019, 06:43

Hello, can I create a color gradient in the text to be editable? I came to InDesign right away, but I can't do it in Quark ... Thanks for any help ...

Hi Jiri,

It is not possible as far as I know/remember. I'm not at a computer right now so once I'm back to it I can take a look and if it is possible I'll update the thread.

Hi Jiri,

sorry, not sure what you mean? Do you mean whether you apply a gradient to a text box? Yes, you can. Or whether you can edit a gradient that you have created and named? That's not possible directly, you need to apply it to a box, edit it and save again (and replace).

Thanks
Matthias

Hi Jiri,

ah, thanks, now I understand.

You can do that in QuarkXPress but only when you convert text to boxes (which can be anchored too).

Thanks
