So I'm trying to get a simple clipping mask to work in illustrator so I have a file in a vector format. It's simply putting 2 lines over text. I can easily do it in photoshop but I can't seem to figure it out in illustrator i've looked at a few tutorials and it's still stumping me... Here are some images and also some information Both f's are are compounded and as well as both of the red lines

Those letters need to be a compound path.

Select the red lines and cut them

Select the letters and go into Draw inside mode (press SHift +D 2 times)

Edit > Paste in Place

Double click outside to leave the Draw inside mode

Not sure if this is more complicated but I couldn't figure it out the way that both of you had mentioned to do it. I needed up outlining both the f's and turning them to shapes combining them with the shape combined tool putting the lines below the image and then. Dividing them and then removing the segments I didn't want
