I can see a "Creat mask" button in the transparency pannel. Its such an easy way to quickly add texture on my shape. But the thing is that its made to manage transparency whereas i would like creat texture with color. The best way to do it is to creat a clipping mask but its not as easy to do because i have to go to object > clipping mask > creat… I would rather have a button like the transparency pannel.

Is there any way to creat a clipping mask with in a pannel ( such as the transparency pannel ) or anyway to completly change color in the transparency mask instead of made the transparency change ?

  • Hit Ctrl+7? Or you could make a action in actions panel

There's no panel for a clipping mask.

You can however use an Opacity mask, which is what the Transparency Panel creates, to create a masked color.

You just need to mask a colored object and stack objects.....
