I have a single page PDF with lots of shapes scattered around. There are some textboxes above some of the shapes as well (hence I cannot use Ctrl+A). Is there anyway that I could select all shapes (not textboxes) and set their fill color?
This is what I am trying to achieve in one shot (if possible):
Not possible in Acrobat. This is something that needs to be done before the file is converted to PDF.
Are the symbols page content or are they annotations on the page. They look like annotations to me. If so, they're easy enough to replace with filled versions of the same annotation. Can you share the PDF? If so, I could tell you for sure.
You are right. They are from Bluebeam symbol library (or what they call tool chest for what is worth) which I hate by the way !
We have another PDF software in our company named PDF Xchange Editor which is easily capable of doing what I want but I was hoping to automate this daunting task and skip the painful manual clicks. See video below which demonstrates what I am currently doing in PDF Xchange Editor
