Hi Everyone,

 

 I have problem: i want to select a sleeve of a t-shirt design to insert a image. the only problem is that when i click on the sleeve the whole shirt get's select.

I tried to use the clipping mask but that does not work either.

Look at the screenshot

 

Thanks

Hi Saverio,

 

Thanks for reaching out. Looks like the object is grouped. I agree with the suggestion shared by Charu. Another way is to select the desired object from the Layers panel. For more details, you may refer to these tutorials:

Saverio,

 

In addition to what Charu and Shristi said, in connexion with the Direct Selection Tool it is often necessary to hold Alt/Option when selecting to get the whole path instead of only one or more segments, also known as temporarily switching to the Group Selection Tool.
