Freehand Tutorials - Using a Blend For Irregular Shapes in FreeHand® - Gradient fills are often used to shade objects for a realistic look. Using a gradient fill is limited because the gradient steps don't always run in the same direction as the shape of the object. Many times you will encounter irregular shapes and you would like to give them a gradient fill only to achieve unsatisfactory results. This technique is useful in these situations.
Freehand Tutorials - Applying a Gradient Across Multiple Objects In FreeHand® - When applying gradient fills to objects in FreeHand, each object will have the full range of the gradient applied to it. However, this may not be the effect you want to create. Sometimes you may want the gradient fill to be shared across multiple objects. The way to do this is to apply the gradient to a composite path. The example in this tutorial uses FreeHand 9 on a text object that has been converted to paths.
