Error making artboard [branched]

I'm getting an error making the artboard if I adjust the rectangle any way: "To create Artboards, select non-rotated rectangles that are not clipping masks." If I don't adjust any of the anchorpoints, it makes the artboard just fine. If I made the rectangle perfect the first time, I wouldn't have a problem. But of course, it always needs refinement, but if I do, it won't convert to an artboard 😕

[Branched from Snap Artboard to grid?]

Maybe a workaround....

make adjustments to your rectangle as needed, draw a NEW rectangle over it, making sure it snaps to the same size, use this NEW one to make create artboard?

I am having exact same problem all day today, but mine I type in size by "Alt-Clicking rectangle tool" so it is exact size but when I go to make it an artboard i get same error, even though I have never rotated, of used this brand new, just made rectangle for a clipping mask or anything.

VERY frustrating.
