Can't Release Clipping Path

Jul 18, 2013 5:55 PM

I'm working with another artists's file, and I can't seem to release the clipping mask he created. When I try, I get an error message that says, "Can't ungroup the objects." I've tried releasing Compound Paths, but I get the same message.

Any ideas?

    See if you can isolate the object(s) and check if they are all on the same layer.  It may require a process of elimination to see how the pieces interact with eachother.  I sense it is a layering problem.

    You can always go into the layer panel and move whatever is inside whichever container out of it and up in the hierarchy.
