Magic Wand Not Working

If the Magic Wand tool (Y) isn’t doing its job the way you think it should (i.e., it’s not selecting objects that it should be selecting), make sure the blending modes are not causing a problem. Double-click on the Magic Wand tool in the Toolbox to open its palette and uncheck Blending Mode. Why? When it is checked, the wand will only select objects with the same fill and the same blending mode. (Note: If this option isn’t showing, go to the palette’s flyout menu and select Show Transparency Options).
