Typical situation.

  1. Make an object in gradient: image description

  2. Move the object:

    image description

  3. Uninstall Inskcape.

My question therefore is, whether I can bind the gradient to the object so that it moves when I move the object, resizes when I resize the object and generally acts as background, not invisible object I cannot control.

    To me the typical situation would rather be: Select the object -> move it -> undo because the wrong object was moved --> zoom to try to select the right object by clicking at random locations near the object --> unzoom --> move --> the object has disappeared because color is now the end of the gradient with alpha zero --> undo --> launch Google to understand, etc.

There is a switch for exactly this:

Move gradients (in fill or stroke) along with the objects
