I've followed the correct procedure for creating a clipping mask for text and it isn't working. I was hoping someone could set me straight. For a start, it says cut the text with control c. Cut is control x. I tried them both it didn't work. Do you keep the text selected after you've cut it before you select the background? Can someone please give me the right instructions? Thanks
