Can you change the default for the magic wand tool? I use it all the time and having to manually put it to a tolerance of 0 all the time is just a little annoying.
Open the default profiles of any of the files located here (users/library/applications suport /Adobe Illustrrator CS6/en_US/New Document Profiles. Change magic wand to zero and save as over the file.
Then when you create a new document choose the profile name.
The location is for mac, Win location is very similar, except "library" shoudl be different.
Select same fill.. or select same stroke weight. I'm just saying in 25 years, I've never once needed the Magic Wand tool. But then again the bounding box is a useless feature as well. It's not like everything in Illustrator has some super secret only-that-tool-can-do function.
I never used to use it either, but now I use it all the time. No hotkey for Select > Same, so I don't bother with it. I gotta have my hotkeys.
I'll have to try the suggested fix one I'm back to my work computer on Monday. Thanks for the help.
The Magic Wand actually can do some things that cannot be done with the Select menu commands. For example, detecting stroke weights within a specific range.
Of course, it would be far better to eventually introduce a proper Find and Replace Objects / Appearances feature. See FreeHand, for instance.
Apart from that, can anybody confirm that Mike's suggestion does work in Illustrator CS6? The Magic Wand settings used to be only session-specific, not document-specific. If they are still session-specific, I'd rather say it won't work in AI CS6.
