Why are my shapes on the artboard but not on the artboard


I have this masked shape group and a text block made, and it’s on an artboard. However, it is not on the artboard under the layers.

The text block is on the artboards layer, but the masked shape is not. Visually they are both on top of each other.

I think it happened because I copy-dragged the shape mask from the pasteboard to the artboard. Why wouldn’t the shape just automatically move to the artboard layer? This is genuinely infuriating.

Is there a setting I need to turn on? I need to fix this because it’s costing me time. We all know seconds of missed actions add up to hours of lost work.
