    Why is Pathfinder crop tool removing items from artboard?

    Artsey1

      Hello all,

       

      I have a complexe vector drawing with shapes that pass the artboard. I want to crop the items within the artboard without using a clipping mask. My problem is when I draw a rectangle equal to the artboard, place it on it's own in the top layer, unlock and show all shapes (there are no open paths) and select everything, the results don't give me a proper cropped vector graphic. For some reason, it removes elements from within the artboard and leaves white lines where my paths are....live vapour trails! (there are no transparencies and everything is in RGB)

       

      Here is the before and after of the bottom of the artwork. Any ideas?
