There are two types of gradients:
- Linear gradient
- To create a linear gradient select an area object from your drawing area.
- Circular gradient
- To create a circular gradient select a circle object from your drawing area.
- Select an area symbol.
- Choose the straight line or circle drawing mode.
- Draw an object. OCAD uses only the first four vertex to create a linear gradient.
- Select Create Gradient from Object menu.
- Choose the first color:
- - Linear gradient means the left color is the first color.
- - Circular gradient means the color in the middle of the circle is the first color.
- 6. Choose the second color.
- 7. Selection:
- - Do not add the new image objects to a selection
- - Add the new image object to an existing selection
- - Add the new image objects to a new selection
- 8. When clicking Create OCAD generates 100 image objects in different colors.
- -Choose an new selection for the gradient to select and move it easily with Reload Selection in Select menu.

Use the Crop function in Object menu to cut the image objects to a new shape:
- Create an object with required gradient.
- Draw an object on the other with the desired shape.
- Choose Crop Objects from Object menu.
- Choose Object to crop: Only chosen objects -> object with gradient (100 objects).
- Choose Line or area crop object: Chosen line or area object -> object with desired shape.
