Create gradients in IllustratorOn November 15,2021 by Tom Routley
Apply gradient on one object. Select the other objects that you want to fill with same gradient. To do this, click the Selection tool from the toolbar. Hold the Shift key and click the objects that you want to fill with same gradient.
Select the Color picker tool from the toolbar and click the gradient bar in illustrator. Then, select objects on which the selected gradient is to be applied.
Click the Fill icon in the Gradient panel, toolbar, or Properties panel.
Using the Gradient tool, do one of the following:
To create a gradient with one Gradient annotator, click anywhere on the canvas where you want the gradient to start, and drag to where you want the gradient to end.
To create a gradient with a Gradient annotator for every selected object, click in the artboard where you want the gradient to start, and Alt-drag (Windows) or Option-drag (macOS) to where you want the gradient to end. You can then adjust the different gradient sliders for the different objects. (Multiple gradient sliders are only created for simple paths.)
