When creating gradients in the Gradient Editor, there will be times where you want to add a color stop that matches the color of another stop in the gradient. It’s easier to do than you might think. First, click on the color stop that’s the color you want to match, and then simply click below the gradient ramp to add a new stop. The new stop will match the color of the currently active stop. Another option is to hold down the Option (PC: Alt) key and drag out a duplicate of the color stop that you want to match. The Option (PC: Alt) key is the “duplicate” key, and it works on lots of things. Give it a try.
