I have a colored background with hundreds of small dots made in illustrator. I have grouped this and pasted it into object in indesign. Now i regret and want to remove it again - but i cannot get a hold of it as one picture, but have to get every little dot by itself. Is it possible to get the whole grouped illustrator thing, or to somehow release the object? Or should i just learn that i need to make a pdf or something from illustrator and paste that into the object?
it should be possible to select the container frame you have pasted the group in and to go to menu:
Object / Select / Contents to select that group and remove it.
Also by using the Layers Panel to select the group pasted inside and remove it.
(InDesign CS5 and above)
Another trick, if this really is a group object, is to select one of the group's items and press the ESC key to select the whole group.
Oh, it was that easy!! Thanks a lot!!!!
