Gradients vector show/hide

The vector that allows me to edit the gradient angle and spacing seems to behave randomly. It pops up sometimes and doesn’t other times. I can’t seem to figure out how to make it show up when I need it to.

An old post said to make sure a shape is selected, and then right click to edit the gradient. I have done that. Nothing happens. Any help here?

Also, if you think the Figma team needs to make working with gradients (and styles) please post an emoji response. Even if this show/hide for the vector was reliable, there are many other issues…

:hot_face: (navigating to the gradient to edit it is a many step click, if you want to use a linear gradient at different angles you need to create totally different styles , if you want to stretch a gradient over many shapes good luck to you.)
