The mid-point is an imaginary line between two colors in a fountain fill. The value of the mid-point represents its position in relation to two fountain fill colors. By changing this value, you can set the point at which two colors in a fountain fill converge.
Adjusting the mid-point of a fountain fill adjusts the point at which two colors in a fountain fill converge.
For example, in a two-color fountain fill using the colors black and white, a value of 50 positions the mid-point in the center of the fill so that half of the fill is black and half is white. Increasing the mid-point value to 99 results in a fountain fill dominated by black. Decreasing the mid-point value to 1 results in a fountain fill dominated by white.
