I want to change the origin of a radial gradiant in inkscape (so that it's not the centre of the shape, but off to one side). How do I do this?

Radial gradients work as colored circles with the color transition beginning at the center. Three handles are available : the square one is the center of the gradient, and the circle ones change the radius of the gradient. When the radius is the same for both circle handle, the gradient is perfectly circular. To move the placement of a radial gradient in the object, drag the square handle.

Simply double click inside the radial gradient area.
