A gradient fill creates a smooth transition between one or two colors.

Gradient options

Defines the appearance of the gradient fill to be applied.

Color #

One Color

Specifies a fill that uses a smooth transition between darker shades and lighter tints of one color. When One Color is selected, HATCH displays a color swatch with Browse button and a Shade and Tint slider.

Two Color

Specifies a fill that uses a smooth transition between two colors. When Two Color is selected, HATCH displays a color swatch with a Browse button for color 1 and for color 2.

Gradient Patterns #

Displays nine fixed patterns for gradient fills. These patterns include linear sweep, spherical, and parabolic.

Orientation #

Specifies the angle of the gradient and whether it is symmetrical.

Centered

Specifies a gradient configuration that is symmetrical. If this option is not selected, the gradient fill is shifted up and to the left, creating the illusion of a light source to the left of the object.

Angle

Specifies the angle of the gradient fill. The specified angle is relative to the current UCS. This option is independent of the angle specified for hatch patterns.
