In photoshop I can set the exact position using % of a color stop and it's opacity. I need to do this in Sketch to make it a viable tool for our UX. Is there a way to achieve this with the default gradient fill in Sketch, or with a plugin?

    Hi. Welcome to GDSE. Why do you need exact positions for a gradient? What is the actual problem you are trying to solve?

  • Why wouldn't someone want better/more finite controls over their gradients within Sketch? Uneven gradients and designs tend to look sloppy and, well, unbalanced. When working with multiple designers & devs on a project we need our graphics to be consistent and easy to make (just eyballing it takes more time to get right). It's a total waste.

  • I ask questions like this when I suspect there is a deeper underlying reason for something which the OP may have forgotten to mention, because this often results in XY-Problems. It's not a criticism of your question. I was simply seeking clarity.

  • Hello @DenseEmptiness, welcome to GDSE. May I urge you to assume good intent? A lot of new users ask a question, then when receiving an answer go "yeah, but I'm actually trying to..." So excuse our apprehension. We'd rather get the full story first before investing time and energy answering questions.
