Linear Material

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why when you resize items created with the Linear Material tool they flip?? If you double click the item and resize it by the end point handle about half of the time the item flips or mirrors itself and you have to mirror it back. Very frustrating!! Any ideas on what I am doing wrong or how to get around this problem?

Anyone know if there been a fix to this problem? I am currently dealing with the same problem noted several years ago here.


I was hoping to find the secret to avoiding the flipped Linear Material problem but not sure there is one. If anyone can advise or clarify how this tool is supposed to work I would appreciate it.


I originally thought the problem was that I was moving the endpoints or vertexes with the 'Move:' selection set to 'Entire Object' instead of 'Vertex Only' but I've noticed that doesn't make a difference.


Thank you.
