add a gradient to a pattern

Asked by ladyrae

I have used an image as a pattern for a rectangle fill, but want to apply a gradient to the pattern. Is there a way of applying some type of transparency gradient to the pattern itself? All I see is how to add gradients using colors, not patterns, so when I try to use the gradient tool, my pattern disappears and color is used instead. Thank you!

i dont't know if there is another way to do that.. but here is the way that makes more sense to me:

1. duplicate your object with the pattern
2. on the duplicate set your gradient from black to white
3. select both your pattern object and gradient object, Object Menu> Mask > Set

(gradient object must be on top)

hope this helps.

Can you help with this problem?
