Take a screenshot and post it in your next reply.
On top of my head, I would guess what you are seeing is the clipping path. Not sure though.
Take a picture and attach it. That will give me a better opportunity to look.
Also note, that oftentimes using tools like the anchor selection tool or the scissors on compound paths and groups will de-select content, which you then forget to remove only to find out that it's still there when clicking in a seemingly empty area...
i can't get illustrator to re-enact the problem right now. I'll have to wait for it to do it again, then I'll upload a pic. thanks so much for your willingness to help! I will run into the problem again soo, then send a screenshot.
Possibly a screen redraw issue?
