I have few vector icons that are of a particular style scattered across all of my document. Now the client wants to change the style of the icons. Is there a way to find and change vector objects like we can do for texts?
I thnk that would require a script. There is no way for InDesign to identify a particular vector object.
Are they linked graphics? Are yiou simply looking to replace them with a new graphic? You can do that in the Links panel using Relink.
Yes, I was assuming that the vector graphic was embedded. Some smaller Illustrator objects are copied and pasted into InDesign (which turns them into InDesign vectors).
and this is a classic example of why that's a poor workflow.
Unfortunately they are not linked, I should have thought about it before.
I think maybe the best bet is to go ahead and Place (link) an instance of the new logo someplace like the pasteboard, then copy it to the clipboard. Delete the old embedded logos one at a time and paste the new logo from the clipboard.
Steve mentioned scripting.
Even with scripting this could be very hard.
Could you post a sample InDesign document and some screenshots.
A before and a after the change situation?
When posting some screenshots please select the items with the Direct Selection tool so that the path points are visible.
