I just tried this in 4.2 and it still works

World menu>appearance  (click the stay up pin)
>set desktop color (this puts up a pallette )
click the round dot on the left this is the stay up button 
when you click it an x will appear next to it.

>set gradient color (this puts up the second pallette underneath the first)
click the stay up dot.

Now you can play

Mouse down and drag the cursor around on the top box to set a solid color.
Then mouse down and drag the cursor around to vary the gradient color.
The order is important as the top box will undo the work of the bottom box.

When you are satisfied dismiss the boxes by clicking the x's

Have Fun.

Yours in curiosity and service, --Jerome Peace
