Re: [Gimp-user] Gradient tool : how to modify the gradient ?

WIN 7 64 bit;  V. 2.8.16
I can't find any way to save the non-writable gradient to a copy that I can edit. I've got the "Edit Gradient" tab up, and can see the gradient, but there is no button/option to "save-as". There is a "save" button, but that only saves that same gradient.

I must be missing something.

I'm trying to use the gradient tool, but I would like to modify the
gradient law. I guess that the modification takes place here :
but I can't do any modification.

When hovering the black and white triangle it says "click : select;
: move.." etc, but these triangles don't react to any mouse action.

I have the same issue either on macOS or on Windows, so I probably
something in the Gimp usage itself.

Gimp 2.18

Any help appreciated

The standard Gimp gradients are normally marked as non-writable so you can not
edit them , see:

Edit -> Preferences -> Folders -> Gradients

Best leave it that way and duplicate the gradient you want to edit. That saves
to your Gimp profile.

example attached.



That solved my problem, thanks.
