Gradient handles disappear

Hi. I’m finding that sometimes the gradient handles will disappear when editing an object and I can’t get them to reappear to edit the gradient angle. Am I missing something or is there another way to numerically edit a gradient angle/starting point? Any help is appreciated.

I found another thread that had a solution to this issue…

Make sure you are selecting a single object, not a group. Gradient directions can only be edited on single objects/items.

Thanks for the tip. This limitation was not obvious because you can still access the gradient settings even though you may have selected a group.
N.B. editing a filled frame DOES show the handles.
