Hi Carol, Miguel;
Thanks, but the steps including and after #3 do not work on my version of
In #3, double clicking the gradient shows a dialog box titled "Gradient
Selection" with an "Edit" and "Close" button.
I tried click-dragging the listed gradient to the image, no luck.
In #5, I did not see an option for "custom from editor" nor a "blend"
It seems as though you should be able to drag a gradient from the selection
box to the new image but that does not work. The pointer does change shape
to a northwest pointing arrow with a little menu icon detached from it in
the southeast corner.
