  3. Pathfinder and clipped objects/draw inside

    Right now, when trying to combine via Pathfinder, an object with a draw inside function/clipping mask, with another object - it basically release the clipping masks and combines everything.

    When trying to make an outline for characters with a lot of details, it becomes very frustrating.

    Attached is a simple example

  4. Masking objects or their parts - simple and fast.

    Masking with "Make clipping mask" is often practical and fast. Great! Thank you.
    I am asking you to modernize this method of creating a mask:

    1. new option: Invert Mask
    2. When I want to mask a part of an object quickly, but in only within the shape of my mask. For example, a hole in the facility.

    3. new option: Add or create an "Opacity Mask" from the object above.

    4. Such a practical shortcut to create a mask of the "Opacity Mask (alpha canal)" type from a selected object, eg with a griadient. Now, creating an Opacity mask is overly complicated.

  5. Clipping Mask with complex objects

    I'm trying to clipping mask an object not that complicated (1000 points) and Illustrator says it's to complex (really?). But if I do a "paste inside" with Indesign, Illustrator allows the Clipping Mask.

  6. Expanding Compound Clip Mask into induvidul paths for production

    I want to produce individual paths to a set artboard size fro production after designing a compound clip mask. sample below. There are to many steps involved in individualizing these paths. First you need to group everything with in the clip path then save in place. then release the clip mask path then the compound path. next you need to copy a paste into each individual path. In Corel draw, after designing in the clip mask all you do is release that mask and it is automatically in each individual path after release.. Help me Ai best perform this task,…

  7. Hide contents outside of a clipping mask from the selection tool

    Contents outside of a mask boundaries are still visible from the selection tool, so i's often tricky to select other objects behind. It would be great to have an option to just see the boundary of the mask with the selection tool.

  8. Allow selecting a clipping mask by its fill

    Currently, I need to select clipping masks by their edge, which is tricky. I prefer selecting objects by their fill.

  9. Image Crop Feature

    This is a bug with regards to Image crop feature in Illustrator.

    While I try to unembed a cropped image (in Illustrator) and link to a PSD source file, the source PSD file gets flattened or layers get merged to a single layer. The source PSD file gets altered and damaging it.
