Can't enter path edit mode on shape when image has been masked or having used 'Paste Appearance'

I've turned a rectangle into a parallelogram by double clicking it, selecting two of the points, and moving them independently of the other two points (Path Edit Mode, I think this is called). I have then pasted an image into the shape using 'Paste Appearance'. I would like to edit the points independently after pasting in the image, but double-clicking the shape only selects the image and no longer allows me to select the four anchor points.

 

I have also tried using Mask With Shape instead, but it doesn't work any better.

 

Is there a way to directly edit the points of a shape after you have pasted an image into it?

Hi Alex,   Thanks for reaching out. I tried the same on my end and was able to edit the points. To edit the points, please ensure you are double-clicking on the parallelogram border to enter the edit mode instead of double-clicking on the center of the parallelogram. Please try that and let us know how it goes.   Regards Rishabh

Thanks! Clicking on the border of the parallelogram instead of the center is the way to do it.
