How do masks work in AD? In Sketch I can set a layer to be a mask for other layers, so that everything inside the limits of this layer is masked. Does this also work in AD? Wasn't able to figure out how masking works here.

In the Layers panel, drag the object you want to use as a mask over the thumbnail of the layer you want to be masked (a small blue vertical line should appear to let you know you are doing it right), then release the drag. A small crop icon will appear over the object you used as mask in the Layers panel.

is there a quicker way of masking and unmasking? like command 7/ command shift 7? Also, I can easily get to my grouped images in the mask, but to modify the mask itself I still have to go into the layers panel. Is there a way, like double-clicking or using the white arrow key (I tried these options and it didn't work though)?
