Hi there, 

I have multiple masks on a single layer. I need to select individual masks but cannot figure out how.

 

Every time I click on the composition, it selects the layer, not the mask layer I'm trying to select.

 

I've tried alt click, alt drag marquee over multiple masks - no matter how I select or drag select or alt drag click left mouse or right mouse buttons it won't highlight an individual mask under the layer.

 

I've just figured out that I need to click on a line of a mask to select it. I was clicking in the middle of the mask. 

So problem solved - but now cannot figure out how to delete this post.
