24. Next click the Strokes icon on the Toolbox and choose "No Stroke" from the Pen tab. The rectangle should now appear similar to the example below.

25. We want to give this new rectangle a gradient fill from white at the top to medium blue at the bottom. Start by bringing up the Inks palette and selecting the "Gradient" tab. Then bring up the Gradient manager. With an unselected gradient ink, the name of the gradient in the manager should be "Untitled Gradient Fill". Just under this box is a color bar with pointers for the starting and ending colors. The pointer for the starting color is selected (circled below left). You can tell it is selected because the pointer is highlighted and the color icon (the button just below the color bar) will be the starting color. Click this icon (clircled below right) to access the pop-up color palette. This is the same palette that appears in the "Color" tab of the inks palette. Choose the white ink (below right) for the starting color.
