Is there a way to select multiple contours after using "live trace"?

Apr 13, 2012 11:44 AM

I am using "live trace" "make and expand" command in order to post-process images.


This generates multiple path contours. In order to select a path I know that I have to “ungroup” the art object. This allows me to select one path, or even two using the shift key. However I am not able to select more than two paths (as a matter of fact I am trying to select 10 paths).

Is there a solution for selecting more than 2 paths after “live trace”?


Thank you for help.

    I dont think that there is any such limitation on selection of object after live trace , may be you haven't ungrouped properly ....


    1) edit--> select All


    2) object-->ungroup


    and then check

    If you having difficulties selecting the paths on the canvas try selecting them in the Layers Panel using the shift key as well.
