Gradients has odd selection swaps

it just selects really wonky and is very confusing and quite impossible to use it seems if you dont speed run it.

effects:

  • selects far away stops
  • creates and pulls and then swaps between them super fast.
  • not being able to select at all
  • while selecting colors it can changes stops.

demo
gradient_selection_odd

gradient_selection_odd_2

thoughts:
there should be a limit distance to select distance to select stops nearby also you can limit selecting stops to “mousePress” and not “mouseMove” so you hold a stop and be able to move it without swapping them around, because you also need to change relative positions with other stops and since it is linear you cant go around other stops.

impossible to use

Is it covered by this bug report?:
447464 – Gradient stops in vector tool don't work

it seems that it is.
