I understand that's very fundamental question, and I promise I search the forum prior to posting, but perhaps it's my bad english and wrong phrasing, that leads to poor results. So if that has been discuss, please kindly don't waste your time, just link me to the post and I will read away.
I have very complex file, with hundreds of paths, shapes, text, outlined text, etc... It's a brochure with graphs, scematich drawings and text.
Last moment, the client like the reverse the colors from (current) Black on white, to all White on dark gray background.
Problem is, I can't seem to find easy way to just change the colors, without selecting one by one, every single object. When I selest all and choose white, it start filling paths with solid fill... Editing it wastes allot of my time and I have many pages to do.
Is there any way to simple change color of everything at once, just from black to white ? Or do I have to go object by object manually ?
Thank you very much, for all the help so far, and I'm sincerly sorry to waste your time if that has been covered previously.
Thank you both for such prompt follow up. I know it's just typing and it's easy but I sincerly mean it. Thank you.
The INVERT work on some images.
The "SAME" seem to work funny way. When I select STROKE COLOR, it does nothing, but when I select WIGHT then it does and in fact I'm able to change lots of strokes at once with ease. Even tho I'm left with few small bits here and there which I need to change manually, it is certainly far better than doing one by one.
Thanks a lot for the help, it's what I was looking for.
By the way I not once used the SAME menu. Feel so lame, given I use AI (not daily but often) for few years now... Shame.
Thank you and you guys have a great day
The SAME option works really strange.
When I select Stroke Weight, it doesn't select strone but it selects text. While my 0.25 strokes are not selected at all.
Now, if I select same FILL COLOR, it selects strokes... This is so strange.
Could it be because this files came out of PDF ? Hm..... the stroke tho, when I select, still react like a stroke, I can see the thickness and all. So it's not converted to fills.
Yet SAME doesn't seem to think it's a stroke and only select it when choosing FILL COLOR.
I'm going to google that out and read, I think I have some major mosconception about some of the Stroke / Fill meanings... Seem to be working all in reverse...
In the future, get in the habit of always defining Swatches for colors you use in the design and always define them as Global Swatches. When you edit a Global Swatch, all objects to which that Swatch has been applied update accordingly.
