    Wow ! It seems absolutely amazing that Microsoft has made such a basic task as put a gradient in the background of a tab cell such a pain. In Apple Pages 4.3 that is the simplest thing ever : just select the cell and make your gradient. That was back in 2014. Here the thing is tricky as hell ; looks like a sort of play and works very bad. This does not qualify as a professional tool to work with.
