    Eeek, quick! Color-to-transparent gradient in Indesign?
    Hopefully someone can answer this quickly, I need to wrap up this job before it goes to press and am trying to figure out one thing. Is there some way in Indesign CS to have a gradient go from a color to transparent? Specifically, I want a line's stroke to fade from black to clear, because black to white stands out on the faded background it has.

    Any takers?

    nope, you can do that in photoshop or illustrator though.

    Curses. I figured as much, I would've thought by now Adobe could integrate that into a layout program since it's everywhere else.

    Thanks for the quick reply...

    what Id recommend is a gradient that fades to the color itll overlap, so it seems clear, or if its on another layer with nothing else behind it, change layer opacity to
    overlay or something.
