Hi, I've been playing around with Adobe XD for a few hours and am running into a problem: how do I mask an object with a curved line? I created the curved line using the pen tool, it has three anchors total (looks like an S on its side), and the object I want to mask is a rectangle with some rounded corners.

For the rectangle, I want the area under the curve masked away. When I select the curve and the rectangle in assets then mask using the curve (⇧⌘M), I get this:

The area under the curve is masked out, but the entire rectangle above the horizontal center of the curve is also masked out. How can I get just the area below the curve to be masked out?

Not exactly. Sorry if my explanation above was confusing. I would like this:

to have the shaded part masked out:

So only half of the rectangle above the curved line remains.

You want to cut it off?

Use the shapebuilder tool https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/creating-shapes-shape-builder-tool.html or live paint if you want it to be editable.

Is this not possible with masking in Adobe XD...? It seems that something simple like this should be. Essentially, this is the effect I want to achieve:

but with the curved line as the foreground.

Today in this Adobe XD tutorial I show you how to create complex layer masks that enable you to create layered images easily!

rPlease review this picture. You can use instead path circle. The problem is that you need to close your "S" path.

Thanks for your prompt reply, and sorry about delaying mine! I am close but unsure how to fix this last issue. After closing the S-curve using the pen tool (the left edge is curved out, not sure how to fix that), I selected the "Mask with Shape" option.

After masking, this is the result. How can I change it to mask the lower part and keep the upper part?
