Illustrator always seems to have trouble with parts of art that are hidden in clipping masks. If parts of an object are 'clipped away', then that's it. They shouldn't be seen, selectable or anything by anything except the Direct Selection Tool, right?
In older versions you were able to select a portion of an object which was hidden beyond the bounds of a clipping mask. Thank god, you fixed that one.
My current problem, though, is that I need to use Smart Guides to snap a print ad to a new artboard. But I can't get it to work because rather than recognizing the border of the ad, it's trying to snap the hidden portion of "clipped away" art. (See photo)
