Photoshop: Add a guide to the gradient tool handles for making perpendicular gradients

Imagine you are creating a layer mask (or anything else) and you start with the shape on the left, but what you actually want is the shape on the right (with the gradient):



It's nearly impossible to add this gradient perpendicular to the lower edge of the shape. This is especially true with shapes that are very wide but low. A visual guide like in the mockup below  would greatly improve the experience:

Bonjour, il suffit de créer la forme avec un dégradé intérieur selon l'orientation souhaitée, de convertir
le calque de forme en objet dynamique on pourra ensuite l'orienter selon ses désires.



Hello, it is enough to create form with an internal gradation according to desired orientation, to convert
the tracing paper of form in a smrt object they will then be able to orientate it according to his want.

I like the original suggestion.  It is simple and easy to understand and should be easy to implement and it will work on layers and their masks.  Nevertheless, I am pleased that Dominik understands that Yves is trying to be helpful and is offering an option that doesn't need Adobe to improve anything.

Yes, good idea to have a baseline on the grad tool to assist in aligning the starting point to another line/edge and get very close to apply grad perpendicularly, regardless of angle of objects/lines/edges/etc.
