Hello, and sorry if the question have been asked before, but I would like to know if there is a function that would select automatically the "similar objects" according to stroke colour, fill colour, and other parameters.

I used this function before in illustrator (Unfortunately, I no longer have it to check) and it was very useful, particularly when you have tones of layers.

One of the top reason I may use it is when I am trying to select die-cuts marks on small objects (think small stickers scattered on a big sheet of paper and needed to be cut with let's a say a plotter)

We use the same artwork to print the packaging and in that case, I need to get rid of the die-cut marks (they are all with the same stroke colour). The way I was doing in Illustrator was to select one die cut and "auto-select" all the others based on the reference selected stroke colour.

 

If it doesn't exist yet, I'd raise my voice for a feature request :)

 

Thanks!

Hey fellows,

I'd like to agree here. This function would be great to edit existing files with many individual elements that look
the same but are separated and would otherwise have to be selected individually.

A small workaround to at least change colours universally could be to use the function of global colour swatches
however this would only work if you started building the document from scratch.

Therefore I would also be happy if this feature would be implemented sometime. :10_wink:

Cheers

This feature would be essential when cleaning files that originate from CAD software. Those tend to have amazing amount of lines and objects, many of them fully redundant.
