Linear Gradient Percentage Marker

Thought that I’d suggest adding a percentage indicator on the linear gradient colour selector. When I’m adjusting the colours in my linear gradient track, I’d like to know the precise location where my colours are on the track - a feature currently not included.

If the far left of that track is 0, the far right is 100, and I have a colour marker near the middle then I’d like to know if my middle marker is at 50, or 51, or 49. This allows me to be precise with my colours when creating new gradient templates that I can then use throughout my projects.



I thought I might add the link to an old Spectrum post from 2017 (yes, two thousand seventeen) also asking about this:
Gradient Fill - Defining location in percentages · Figma (

Came here to suggest this same thing. Seems to me a very basic feature that many designers use. I’m hopeful that we’ll see it in a not-so-distant-future release…?

YES! please for this feature.
Really irritating you cannot mathematically input the positions for each colour stop in the gradient. With all the other amazing things Figma can do, this seems like an oversight.

+1 for this feature, seems basic enough, and still no way to input precise values atm :frowning:
