Hi everyone,

I'm having a small problem with Illustrator CS5.1 at the minute. Basically, I have some text that I have created outlines on and an image underneath, when I select the two together and create a clipping mask everything seems to disappear.

I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Can anyone help?

My suggestion would be to post your problem at the Adobe Forums in the Illustrator section.

You can also go to Adobe "Learn Illustrator CS5" and check out the tutorials.

Put the text under the picture. should work.
or use the 'draw inside' tool (select your desired picture, copy it, select your text, hit the draw inside option - found
under your colours on the panel on the left, you should have a different sort of bounding box visible, now paste your picture over the text.

hopefully this helps
