  1. clipping mask Bug/glitch

    Hello.

    I'm using illustrator CC (25.1) and MacOS 11.1.

    When I use clipping mask, sometimes Illustrator shows a duplicate shape of that mask or shows what's inside the clipping mask (that should be hidden). When I scroll through the artboards, the clipping mask start to blink like a glitch effect.

    If you look the at the attached files you can see at the top, a clipping mask with some brown shapes inside. When I scroll down, another rectangle shows up.

  2. Using a sublayer as a layer mask is broken

    Please open the file attached and watch the video.
    Here is what happens, try to replicate it:

    1. The document has a Layer 1 and it has a sublayer — Layer 2, which has one rectangle in it
    2. If you select the Layer 1, the Make/Release Clipping mask button enables — click it
    3. Notice that Ai underlines both Layer 2 AND <Rectangle>, as if they are both are clipping masks
    4. If you click it again, everything is OK. But instead, select the Layer 2 and click the button after
    5. See how Ai still shows Layer 2 underlined (bug #1)
    6. Select a…

  3. Image in Clipping mask as well as everything on its layer disappears constantly

    Image in Clipping mask as well as everything on its layer disappears constantly. The image isn't displaced but when I double click where it is it shows itself in Isolation mode. Its terribly annoying.It shows as an outline but doesn't show up at all otherwise.

  4. Measurement of a clipping path object bug on PC (Illustrator 26.0.1)

    I have a logo which uses a mesh gradient inside a clipping path. On my Mac the X and Y measurements relate to the object, ignoring the elements that are outside of the clipping path. When I share this with a colleague who is using the same version of Illustrator on a PC the measurements are different and relate to all the elements in the object and not just the clipping path? Any ideas?

  5. Text gets smaller if used as a clipping object

    When I set cap height of a text object to be exactly 10 mm, and then use it a clipping objects to clip an art, the height of the font gets smaller, although Ai still thinks it’s exact.

    Please see the file and GIF attached.
