Default Customized *starting* color for gradient shape?

Trying to make an arrow with color starting red and using a gradient to change into blue.



The arrow is blue by default, so "Format Shape", change "Fill" to "Gradient" and selecting red does the "blue-to-red" arrow just fine.

But I can't get "red-to-blue".

What am I missing here? Thanks.

When you look at the Gradient colour dialog, there are two ways to set the colour direction.

The quickest way is to change the angle of the colour by 180 degrees.
The slower way is to click on the slider shapes at each end and choose the colours for those positions.
