Flash Gradient Tool Tip: Removing Colors with Ctrl + Click
How many times have you been working on the gradient tool palette, clicked too near the color bar (or been dragging an existing color swatch on the bar) only to accidentally add a new color swatch through the click? And then when you try to drag it off, you just end up moving it around or even adding yet another one you didn't want...

No? Just me? Well, maybe there are a few other mouse-clumsy people out there with the same problem. There is a quicker, easier way to get rid of those unwanted color swatches on your gradient, though: Ctrl+click. Just hold down the control key on your keyboard and click on the unwanted swatch, and it'll disappear.
