[ADe] Select same color / fill / stroke / appearance

Recommended Posts

I know the Serif Team is small, so I'm impressed with how much you all have been able to do, but I still have to voice that more advanced selection features are a big deal for my workflow. Keep it up!

I mentioned about QuarkXPress powerful "Item Find/Change" but I didn't attached a picture. So, here it is.

Just installed the demo. I was impressed that a very complex Illustrator CC File loaded perfectly and is even faster than in Adobe. To continue my work the "select same..." feature is a must

mateuspollonio,

 

I don't believe it has been added yet but it is an often requested feature so I would guess that it will be added sometime in the future (but when I have no idea).

Surprised a must feature like this one has not been implemented yet. To me the lack of this feature is a deal breaker, I usually export complex drawings from CAD software and I always have to reorganize the artwork because it cames without layers. In Illustrator, It takes me no more than 2 minutes to organizes the drawing, but having to do it manually is not an option. 

 

So please, if you could implement this I would really appreciate that. I'm testing Designer and I am really enjoying the software, way faster than Illy.

This is one of the often used features in Illustrator that I had forgotten about when I jumped into the program. 3 years in and still not on the roadmap. Even Inkscape, which this was supposed to replace can do it.  :(

+1 To see this critical workflow feature added sooner rather than never.

I use the "select same" options and more often the magic wand (with tolerance set to 0) in illustrator constantly.

 

Common usage for me is updating colors in older designs when a color guide changes, or when a client changes their mind about an often used color or stroke in the document (or I do) and need to update it. Magic Wand with a tolerance of 0 makes it easy to do in Illustrator.

 

Quarkexpress looks even more powerful than these Illustrator features- so I wouldn't cry if we had something more powerful than illustrator, but it at least needs to be as powerful as illustrator.

Swatches are fundamentally different in QXP and ID. And it makes sense for them and believe this to be true for the eventual APub. It would be a disservice to APub if it carried along the swatch model of AD.

 

But for a design application such as AD where colors can be done ad hoc (and ought to be able to be done this way), the solution really is to include the select options from Illy. (That doesn't mean that I like the swatch options in AD. I don't. A swatch simply ought to be what is called in AD a global color.)

I just realized AD didn't have this feature. The lack of these (or Affinity-ish implementation) selection options seriously hinder my work as well, I temporarily need to switch back to Ai for this reason.

 

I must say I'm not amused that this thread started almost 3 years ago.

A thread opened 3 years ago and way overdue for an a official response.

Only on day two of using AD full-time instead of Illustrator, and this is the first tool I've really missed, needing to change the appearance of dozens of tiny paths. 

 

Development of this feature has my full support!
