The Color Picker Tab is a card that will shown up by tapping (or clicking) the color well close to any fill, stroke or shadow, inside the Style Tab.

The Gradient Editor
The gradient choices available in Vectornator are the linear and the radial gradient but working with both of them is quite similar.
Linear gradients are usually the most common, where two colors appear at opposite points of an object and will blend into each other.
On the left you see the Linear Gradient fill the square, on the right the Radial Gradient using the same colors.
After selecting your shape, tap to fill and the Color Palette will show up. Tap again to choose the type of gradient you want to apply.
Each of the gradient colors is represented by a circle in the Gradient Bar.
The selected color will have a bigger circle than the others.
Any of those circles you can:
- tap on to set the color via the Color Picker. Updating one of these color circle will immediately update the gradient live. IMAGE
- drag to move and change the gradient smoothness IMAGE
- tap to add a new color to your gradient IMAGE
- Double tap in the middle of the gradient editor to distribute color points.
- Slide across the middle area of the gradient editor to flip the color points.
TIP: updating one of these color circles will immediately update the gradient of your shape.
