    clipping masks and transparent layers

    Eric Greenfield Level 1

      i had a layer with text on it that was pretty transparent. if I cmd + click the layer i usually get a selection around the text, but somehow because of the transparency it selected very little of it, even though I can clearly see the letters very well.

       

      then i tried adding a clipping mask above the transparent letter with a bit of color and the clipped layer would not eve show up. I had to unclip to see it.

      is this normal behavior and why?
