This is a serious bug - I can’t work with it it in the product.
The angle of a linear gradient is relative to the proportions of the shape!!! Fx the angle on a perfect square is correct when making a 45 degrees linear gradient. Adjust the same shape to a long, thin rectangle, and adjusting the linear gradient is weird and incorrect.
Thanks for reporting, this issue is now being handled on ticket #5400062
We’ll get back to you asap.
As a temporary fix I did this
I made a square with the size of the height of the rectangualar shape
Square goes on top of the rectangle
I drag the squarelayer into the rectangelayer
I move the square on the right place

That’s a genius workaround. Simple and elegant.
Thank you for taking your time and for the tip. I can’t work like this in my complex drawings with many, many gradients, though, so I’ll use my other vector programs until this is fixed.
Exported to PDF and imported into Affinity Designer you see the problem. The gradient created by Gravit Designer is distorted.
and AD lets me correct the gradient to a normal linear gradient:
This has already been filed for fixing. Thanks for reporting.
