Searching for lines

I have a document that has a number of lines drawn with the line tool. Now I want to search for the lines so I can edit some of them. Can that be done?

The Find/Change dialog box > Object tab lets you search and replace frames but not lines.

 

So it can't be done natively in InDesign. Maybe someone has (or could) write a script to do that.

What kind of editing are you planning to do?

 

If you work on a PC - you could use free version of my ID-Tasker tool - it will let you to quickly get a list of all Lines, then sort and filter them - and then quickly access them.

I use a PC with Windows 11 and I have tried to install ID-Tasker. I got the AVG warnings but that was cleared and then I got the DEP access violation - as forecast. See attached screenshot. As far as I can see, Windows 11 only allows DEP to be on or off for all programs so I am unable to make an exception of ID-Tasker. Can you give me any further advice?

Do you have BitDefender active?

 

My friend had this kind of error because of the BitDefender - we've spent few hours to find the culprit. After "whitelisting" - it was plain sailing. 

 

If you don't have BitDefender enabled - then you have something else in the system that is checking for viruses / malvare.
