Can CorelDraw X4 select a specific color only? Lets say I have a complex graphic with more than 50 or more colors and thousands of objects all on one layer, for example, is there a way to select one color, like Pantone 175C, but select all of the same objects that are Pantone 175C, and group them to change them all to a different color, like Pantone 478C.
Any hints, this is easily done in Gerber software. Thanks~~Mahogan
Select your artwork and drag and drop in the Color Styles docker, all the colors in your design will appear there; now Shift-click any color in the Pantone palette, and type 478 and click Ok, the Pantone 478 will be hilighted in the palette. Grab the 478C from the palette and drop it on top of the 175C in the color styles docker and all the instances of 175c will be automatically replaced with 478C, even those used in gradients.
Can you explain how to do this in corel 2020? Please
This is a 12 year old thread. I haven't been able to replicate it in CD2020. If you need to change fills by selecting an object of a particular color use this macro: http://macromonster.com/product/jeffs-select-same-2/
Still it's the same than the original post 12 years ago:
menu Edit / find and replace /
the difference is that now we have a Docker, which did not exist before, which makes it easier and it is not necessary to use any macro, because now the program does it. Now we can search the entire document, and we can also search for fill and outline at the same time.
Select Same macro is much easier and works really well for what I do. I select the object that contains the color I want to change, choose Select all, and change them all at once to a new color -- even if in groups. The only thing that could make it better is an eye dropper. Also...you can choose to select outlines as well as fills, plus more.I played with the 2020's Find & Replace, but for me there are way too many steps/options to work through when I can do it with three quick clicks with Select Same. Just sayin'...
installed on Coreldraw 2019 and 2020, but not getting results. Does anyone know how to use this macro, could you please show?
