I have this transparent shape inside this ball which doesn't have any paths and the problem is that this shape doesn't resize with the ball..

enter image description here

Where is this shape coming from? and how can I change it to conform to the original dimensions when resized?

  • Isn't it is compound path?? – Mr.Online Apr 25 '19 at 9:56
  • when i right click and press 'make compound path' the hole dissapears.. do you think it was just a line that was used to cut out that shape? if so why does illustrator not have paths for the cut out? – AGrush Apr 25 '19 at 9:58

Sure it's a Transparency Mask with a second shape inside made with paths. Check the Transparency panel:

To scale all objects, unselect all and double click the Transform Tool → verify that Scale Strokes and Effects is checked
