Sketch shortcuts for creating scrims with gradients

With Sketch, you can finely adjust your gradients with a couple of handy keyboard shortcuts.

  1. You can press the 1-9 keys on when a stop (that isn’t the start or end) is selected to position it on the relative percentage of the gradient. So pressing 4 on a third stop, will place it at 40% along the line.
  2. If you want to position a stop exactly between two existing stops, press the = key on the keyboard.
  3. You can also use the Tab key to quickly switch between color stops, and you can use the arrow keys to adjust the position of a stop incrementally. Holding down the Shift key will amplify the movement.
