A screenshot of the Artboard with everything (possible) selected, preferably including the Layers palette/panel with the Layer opened (you may move it and drag it longer by the bottom edge) might help the helpers.
I presume you have not locked any of the objects (shown with a lock in the Layers palette, unlocked by clicking it).
Hi Jacob, thanks for your response.
I've never done a screen shot before, but is there a way to do this without downloading software? (i can't on my current computer)
Attached is the Illustrator file at least.
When I do "Select All in Active Board" every object is selected, but if I try to use the pointer to select it manually, it doesn't highlight certain objects. specifically the right side of the toilet roll, the bottom left bathroom signs and the "Toilet Times" heading.
Unfortunately, I am unable to open the document; I am still with 10.
Now I can see what is on the page.
You may try this:
0) Create a copy of the document under another name (keep the original away from the imminent destruction);
1) With the copy open, select all (Ctrl+A/Cmd+A) and in the Object dropdown list click Expand Appearance if available (not greyed out);
2) See whether you can select the unselectables.
That seems to have worked! Thanks so much!
You are welcome, Suzanne.
One possibility of creating an unselectable is to use Effect>Distort & Transform>Transform>Move a copy. In that case what you see as a separate object is actually just an unselectable effect of another object. Expanding Appearance will then change it to a separate, and selectable, object.
