Ilustration uses the same COLOUR, in 5 different SHADES. How do I select all the SAME SHADE?

I have a series of illustrations that all use one colour, in 5 different percentage shades. 15%, 30% 50% 70% and 100%.

 

I want to select all the elements that have a shade of 30%. But there only seems to be a way of selecting all the same colour - which is effectively everything.

 

Any ideas of a work around?

Actually I see 70, 50, 40, 20 % in your file and Swatches panel.

But if you check in Preferences > General : Select Same Tint % you will be able to select them with:

Select > Same > Fill Color

2. With the withe arrow select one of the elements on your artwork that contains your desired shadow color
