select objects with same color

Postby harpagornis » Tue Oct 14, 2008 11:49 pm

How to select all the shapes with the same color?

I have this drawing with multiple colors that look the same, but they are different. I also have this legenda in the drawing with the colors. Now I like to match the color in the drawing with the colors of the legenda.

Thanks in advance.

You open the XML Editor (under Edit) and look for the color used (select the object on the canvas, and it gets highlighted in the XML Editor), copy the color (it is one of the values in "Style" e.g.
fill:#ffff00 and insert it into the Style Box in the Search Dialog (Strg F)

Hit enter

enjoy!

There's also Edit -> Select same.
You can select an object, then do Edit -> Select Same -> Fill Color.

This only works for objects having exactly the same color of course.
