>Is there a way that I can use the eyedropper for editing/creating gradients?
Unfortunately not yet, but it's in our plans. I could link up the
gradient window to the dropper, so that when that window is open,
dropper would set the color of the selected gradient stop instead of
the color of the entire object. But I think this may be rather
confusing - what do you think?
In any case, we plan to create a gradient tool which would be able to
edit gradients directly on canvas by dragging the gradient vector
points, and then it will be possible to select the knot corresponding
to one of the gradient stops so it grabs the color setting signals
from dropper, palette (when it's done) and the color dialog (to
replace the current fill&stroke dialog).
