Select Objects Across Multiple Pages?

Recommended Posts

I work on a ~50 page illustrated book, and I often need to change different objects at once on all pages, but it's not possible to select objects from different pages / spreads. This feature would be very useful. Wasn't this asked yet? (Except in this thread).

I believe this is another downside of Affinity's layer model tied to a single page/artboard, so it was discussed before, just in a different context (see @JGD's thread I'm linking below).
Switching to the "Universal Layers Concept" would fix such issues easily.

Well, I hope it's going to happen one day.

I don't think that is correct. InDesign CS6 and Quark 2019 both have a universal/global layer system but neither can select objects on more than 1 page.

You're right. But I never said they can 😉.

It was just my wish, since it would make Publisher superior.

I would very much like to see a page management system similar to Designer's approach, where you see all your artboards on one global board. This is so much better, so I keep going back to Designer for DTP work too...
