Can't Edit Text in a Group/Clipping Mask
In 2018 AI CC, after using a group/clipping mask with text on the inside, you can not edit your text when you double click on the clipping group/mask directly. The Properties panel doesn't display the character settings. See my screenshot
So, to get around this, I have to cut the text out, paste on the main layer, edit it and then cut/paste it back inside my group/clipping mask.
Or, release the entire mask, make my edits then re-group/mask it afterwards. Or I have to open the separate character panel.
As opposed to the way it should. The only way the Property panel display the character settings is if you create/edit your text ONLY on the main layer.

Total agree, it has to be fixed!

I am having the same problem. It can be worked around by opening the character panel, but that sort of defeats the purpose of the properties panel.
