Masks should be applied to single objects with a simple right click
Masks should be applied to single objects with a simple right click. It's so cumbersome (and quite frankly, very outdated principle) to have to create a white object, select two objects, then 'create mask'. No one does this anymore. (look at Sketch)
We should be able to simply right click on an object and set it as a mask. Then anything that is above that mask or in that mask's group layer, should be masked out.
Which brings me to another point, layers in illustrator are so bad. Why for the love, has the layer structure not been updated since 1980? Can't even group things in layers. There is so much guessing when creating in Ai, it makes me insane. Time for Affinity switch?
