make color ramps easier to work with (like they were in 9.x)

Idea created by tomdilts on Nov 26, 2012
    Since version 10 color ramps in the legend include annoying little tic lines (see  for a discussion on the issue).  Esri should revert back to the way things were in 9.x when there weren't tic marks or give the user a checkbox to disable the little tic marks in the legend.  The current solution involves converting to the legend to a graphic, ungrouping about 100 times, and then creating a gradient fill.  This is ridiculously complicated for something that should be very simple.
