Chapter 23. AUTOMATING FREEHAND > Selecting Graphics

Selecting Graphics

The other tab of the Find and Replace dialog box opens the Select panel. Although not quite as powerful as the other side of the panel, the Select commands let you find many more types of objects. Once you have found the objects, you can manually change them, or move them to separate layers, or apply styles to them.

To select objects by attribute:

1.
Choose Edit > Find & Replace > Graphics to open the Find & Replace Graphics dialog box.

2.
Click the Select tab to open that section of the dialog box 15.

  • Document searches through all the pages and the pasteboard.

Click the Add to option to add the selected object to the objects currently selected.
