I have two shapes (left) and I have added rounded corners to the rectangle on the top one using the "Rounded Corners" menu item.
When I select the two shapes and choose "create mask" I want Illustrator to make a mask of the actual shape with the rounded corners and not of the rectangle that existed before I added the rounded corner effect.
However Illustrator gives me the actual result (middle). I want the desired result (right).
How can I do this?
This is what my layers palette looks like:
