I need to add an inside stroke to this object. All it is is an object clipping masked to a pattern. All it will allow me to do is align the stroke to the center. Inside stroke does nothing. I need the stroke on top of the object as well as the pattern it's clipped to. I've never run into a problem like this and I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure out what the problem is. Any help would save my life.
It seems that a clipping path can only have a center-aligned stroke. A solution is to select the clipping path (in the Layers panel, or click with the Group Selection Tool, or opt/alt-click with the Direct Selection Tool), copy and paste in front, and apply the desired stroke attributes.
