Problem with Direct selections (A) - Clicking on the patch does not mark the object
something has changed in Illustrator updates.
I understand that an object nested / masked in an object should not be editable with the Selections Tool (V) from the main object level. Yes, and that's good.
But definitely NOT when use tool (A). This is a different work scope situation in Illustrator when working with the Direct Selections Tool (A).
Then each track visible in the Outline view should be selectable.
This has made the job a lot more complicated now when I want to select objects inside a crop and edit their properties or shape.
Unwanted change in illustrator update.
See the movie.

Allowing direct selection to edit parts that outside of clipping paths, however, could definitely cause a lot of frustration when mistreated. I can think of a lot of cases this would **** me off :) Still, I think that this can be very useful.

As for the second part, I believe this is the original intention and not a strict 'bug'. But I agree completely that it’s not how it should work and I have a request for fixing it:
It has surprisingly little votes.
