Changing a fountain fills center point

Offsetting the center point horizontally or vertically lets you alter the appearance of the fountain fill. Most fountain fills radiate from a point that appears in the center of the fill. Radial and square fountain fills progress in a series of concentric circles or squares from the center of the object outward. Conical fountain fills progress in a circular path from the center of the object outward. Linear fountain fills do not have a center point.
