    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone knew if there is a way to select all the objects in a file that have the same fill color or stroke color. Like in Illustrator you have alot of selection options to get a hold of whatever you want real quick. I know that omega and signlab also have easy ways to select everything with the same fill. It's got to be there somewhere right? where should i look?

    AI is the only program I've ever worked with that can "select same fill" or "select same stroke" colors....etc.

    Omega can do that. I'm 99% sure signlab & flexi can as well, but I couldn't tell you where to look. I'd be very surprised if Corel couldn't do it too.

    as per Wayne K and also visually via the Object Manager: Tools > Object Manager...
    ...click the + sign to expand the layer; Ctrl-click the items to select all of the same colour then select any other colour in the palette to change them all...or perform any other operation on the selection :)

    hey wayne thanks for the tip, that find wizard is pretty neato although not quite as streamline as i had hoped but it will work for me.

    in flexi it's as easy as clicking edit,select by attributes, then select what you want fill,stroke,effect,shape.
