I'm creating a logo that employs a stippled texture (a half-tone) in various sections of objects comprising the logo. I've placed the stipple where I want it, created a clipping path to capture the area. Now I have all these other points that I don't need that I want to delete.
Is there anyway short of releasing the clipping path, manually delete unwanted sections of the stipple and then re-apply the clipping path again? It would be like 'Applying Mask' in photoshop.
You can enter isolation mode without releasing the clipping mask. Beyond that I don't see a way to do this automatically unless you want to make your stipples a compound path or group and use Pathfinder operations. Unfortunately AI doesn not have inside/ outside detection for these kinds of scenarios that wouzld allow to quickly select separate objects in this fashion...
Thanks for your really quick response Mylenium. I came back to the problem this morning with a clearer head and worked out that the Crop feature in Pathfinder did exactly what I wanted. Thanks for pointing me in that direction.
