Masking bug: Masks don't work with lines.

The mask layer doesn't have the lines reveal the layer behind the mask for some reason. I put some pictures here to show the problem:

Can someone please tell me how to fix this?

This is not a bug.

Masks can only be fills.

 

Convert your line to a fill:

Seems that only strokes with variable width appear in the mask when testing the SWF; strokes with uniform width are getting ignored.

The solution is to convert the strokes to fill. Try using fills in general for masks whenever possible.
