Hi Everyone,
I've created some artwork in Capture and I want to use the shapes to create clipping masks in Illustrator.  However, I am coming up with this message :

 

Can't make clipping mask. The top selected object must be a path, compound shape, a text object or a group of those.

Any help to solve this would be great.  Thanks!

Worth me noting - I'm not just trying to make the 'A' purple.  I'm just testing it out so that I can create masks using my artwork.  The A is hand drawn as an outline, vecorised using adobe capture and filled in PS.

Looks like the 'A' is an embedded TIFF file, not vector.

Is that all Capture can output?
