Clipping Mask - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Understood, Len. It was an experiment I needn't perform again. Just curious... Do you use a dedicated newsreader (i.e., something other than an e-mail client), and, if so, is there provision for encodings other than English? =-= Harron =-=...

    Harron,

    I use OE for the NR - but that's ALL I use it for - it isn't used as a mail
    client at all

    Len:

    Is it possible to read posts of this forum by a newsreader? I thought newsreader can be used to read only newsgroup posts. How can I do it?

    Default clipping mask

    I am trying to learn how to use the clipping mask.

    I created a test letter with a clipping mask, but I haven't discovered how to add multiple outlines(strokes) to it.

    The letter on the left has the clipping mask. The one on the right has the multiple strokes.

    How do I get the look of the letter on the right with the clipping mask?

    Click on New Stroke in your appearances pallet and drag it under (behind) the inner one. Rinse and repeat.

    What and where is Rinse? I have been playing with the appearance pallet.

    Say I have a stroke of 1 in yellow. I add another stroke. Make this one a stroke of 2 in blue and drag it to the bottom in the appearance pallet. Add another, stroke of 3 in red, drag it to the bottom.

    I now have an object wich is yellow on top of blue on top of red. If I have the clipping mask only the yellow stoke is visable even though the appearance pallet tells me the others are there.

    I hope im explaining myself clearly.

    Thanks

    Release your clipping mask and make a copy of it {[ctrl]+[c] then [ctrl]+[f]} Now apply your strokes to the copy of your clipping mask and re-apply the original.

    Rinse and repeat.




    Sorry, I was in a bit of a hurry. I just meant repeat.

    I do not understand. I do not want to add strokes to the mask (the graphic inside of the letter), but rather the outer edge of the letter.

    I want the letter on the left that has the clipping mask and want to add the multiple strokes (green and purple) like the letter on the right.

    Mike, Timothy is rightly referring to your letter-shaped path as the clipping mask, (it clips the underlying image--the image is not called the clipping mask). So he advises you to release the clipping mask, (temporarily), then duplicate the letter shape. By putting the duplicate directly on top of the original, you can then re-make the clipping mask using the original and apply your multiple strokes to the duplicate. The proceedure would be:

    Select the clipping-masked object, choose Object > Clipping Mask > Release. Deselect, then select the letter-shaped path only, now Edit > Copy. Now remake the clipping mask as before. Then choose Edit > Paste in Front. Apply multiple strokes to the pasted duplicate.

    Default Clipping Mask

    Using Ill. 9
    Awhile back there was a post on how to get rid of the excess after you clip
    your object so you would get an actual image size. Does anyone remember or
    know how to do this.
    Thanks, Keith
