Gradient Fill & Feathered Edges in Essential Graphics
Solid colors are fine, unless you need a gradient. Need to feather the transparency of a background bar? Can't do that either.
How about adding color and transparency gradients to the Fill options?
While you're at it, a feathered edge option on rectangles, ellipses and polygons would be useful, too.
Thanks John for sending us your feature requests! You are right, there are no gradients for text (we do support gradients for shapes). The way you can however get your job done is by adding effects to the Essential Graphics panel (e.g. 4 Color Gradient, Gaussian Blur etc.). If you want feathered edges you could only use a shadow and turn off the fill completely.
