Hi Adobe

I'm missing the function to select objects with properties like the one currently selected, the "select same stroke" or "same color" etc. Is that not possible in Indesign?

 

Best regards,

Hi janus,

well, you could use Find Object instead.

Of course the Adobe Illustrator feature is easier to use and the found objects are selected all together.

With InDesign's Find Object you can select them only one by one.
