    Illustrator dropping clipping masks and transparency masks


      I've had an issue since CS2 with Illustrator sometimes dropping transparency masks after I save and reopen a file. It's there when I save the file, but if I close down Illustrator and relaunch it and open the file the transparency masks are gone. The files are asved as a .ai file in the same version as it was created in. It will also sometimes drop a shape with a color that is contained within a clipping mask and apply that color to the clipping mask instead when I reopen the file. Any ideas why it does this or if there's a fix out there? It seems to happen to my larger files.
