I have a shaped which when I realse the clipping mask the shape un-clips but the fill colour doesn't. I go into the outline view and there is not shape or line or anything that could be clipping it. And I don't know what to do.
Can you share a screenshot with the object selected and visible in the layers panel?
Can you perhaps embed the screenshots in your post instead of attaching them? Thank you.
Try cmd/ctrl + E or View menu > View using CPU.
