When I choose a gradient background with global colors I can’t use the gradient view panel. This panel stays black.

Add a section
Add a background color
Choose gradient
Click the “left” color and choose a global color.
Tha panel above still is black.

Hi @Lijn-B,

Sorry to hear you’re experiencing trouble with this.

Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to reproduce this error on my end.
Could you possibly share the complete global value, so we may check it on our end?

Additionally, to investigate this issue further I have set up a demo instance.
You can log in with this.
Please see the Global gradient test page.

Feel free to change it to how you have set it up on your installation, to see if the error is reproducible.

Thank you in advance.

I can’t log it any more, so I made a screen capture:

Hope you can reproduce it.

Sorry about that, @Lijn-B.
The demo instance must have expired before you were able to log in.

Thank you for your screencast!
Unfortunately I am still unable to reproduce this, per this short video:


Meanwhile, I have set up another demo instance.
Please log in with this, and see the Global gradient test page.

Thank you in advance.
