Select Same Fill

When I select an object and then go to the menu Select/Same/Fill Color, it selects other objects with the same fill just like it's supposed to... However, when I look at the Color Palette, the fill box shows a question mark. Has anyone else experienced this? If so, do you know why?
I would expect the Color Palette to show the fill color with the associated CMYK or spot color percentages.

Okay. I figured it out.
The culprit was 4 stray text strings that never had text typed into them (see first image) that were hiding off to the side.
When I selected only those text strings, the fill registered a different color (see second image).
Once I type text into the strings, the select similiar fill does not select the text strings anymore (see third image). It really should not select the text strings regardless if there is text there or not as the fill was a different color all together. A minor glitch for sure.

  • Select same fill color/stroke color but not for entire document

    As the title imply's, I am wondering if there is a way to use the "select same fill color" and/or "stroke color" for just a group of objects in a document as opposed to document-wide.
    Thanks for any help you can provide!
    Tony

    Did you make the group into an isolation group?
    ( in the Control bar.)
    Or else you can select the objects you want to change, then Select Inverse and lock or hide.
    Isolation groups are usually handy for this kind of work though.

  • How to select same descendant members from different hierarchies?

    Hi All, 
    please help, how it is possible to select same values for only the same hierarchy member names from different hierarchies?
    Example:
    L1          #L1          L2          #L2          Value
    A          #A          a1          #a1          7
    A          #A          a1          #a2          2
    A          #A          a2          #a2          0
    A          #A          a2          #a1          6
    A          #A          a3          #a3          1
    A          #A          a3          #a3          9

    B          #C          b3          #c1          4
    Query1:
    Select sum(value)
    where L1 = #L1

    L1          #L1          Value
    A          #A          29
    A          #A          21
    Query2:
    Select sum(value)

    Result:
    L2          #L2          Value
    a1          #a1          7

    a3          #a3          9
    b1          #b1          5
    b2          #b2          2
    Names of level members with or without hashmark are identical (A=#A, a1=#a1 etc.).

    [Hierarchy].[L1]*[Hierarchy].[#L1] returns all possible combination of the two hierarchies.
    Here I would filter those cases only, where [Hierarchy].[L1].MEMBER
    = [Hierarchy].[#L1].MEMBER, in aggregated format (Query1 result).

  • "Select Same..." jusst as in Illustrator in InDesign?

    Hello All-
    Just wondering if anyone knows if there are any Indesign plug ins or scripts that work similar to Illustrators "Select Same..." feature of finding objects, type & strokes of the same color, value as what youhave already selected.
    I work in pre-press and we have clients who spec their type in odd colors (0% black, Registration Color, or in an RGB color which isnt even in their color pallet)
    Specificaly in text, it would be great to have a tool that shows what text is colored and where. What objects or anything may be in RGB, because often the color isnt in their pallet. We have these booby traps all the time and it is hard to manually catch them all.
    Any direction to such a plug-in or script or advice would be appreciated!
    DA

    This works excellent for me. I have made a catalog and the prices were in red color, and at a certain stage I wanted a catalog without prices, so I just selected the character color of the prices ( this was used in my catalog only for the prices!) and turned it into none/transparent color! The prices just disappear! That is it, in 3 minutes changed 1800  characters on 100 page! I love InDesign!

    DA,
    Select same wouldn't work in ID as you would only be able to select stuff on a single spread.
    But have you looked at the selection options in the Find/Change by Object attributes?
    That feature is actually more robust than the Illustrator "Select Same" commands.
    You can find objects with a certain stroke color and a specific stroke weight.
    You can search for objects by corner options, transparency attributes, text wrap options, and so on.
    It is so much more powerful than Illustrator!
    And you can save complicated queries for future work.
    Oh, even BETTER than Illustrator.
    You can also APPLY formatting using that dialog box. Much more powerful than Illustrator.

  • How to select same font and apply auto kerning?

    How to select all text frames with same font (for example 'NewCenturySchlbk-Roman') and apply auto kerning?

  • Select statment - fill internal table

    Hi,
    I have following situation:
    TYPES: BEGIN OF q_data,
             i_lqua LIKE lqua,
             v_xxx(20) type c,
           END OF q_data.
    DATA: a_data TYPE STANDARD TABLE OF q_data.
    Now I would write a select statment and fill the table a_data.
    select lqua~matnr lqua~werks... from lqua inner join mch1 into (i_lqua-matnr, i_lqua-werks.....)...
    Is it possible to write a statement without writing the whole structure (all the names of columns) of lqua in the SQL-statement (lquamatnr lquawerks lqua~........)?
    Thanks
    Michael

    1. you can write that but i think you have to write that in SELECT ...ENDSELECT.
    select lquamatnr lquawerks... from lqua inner join mch1 into (i_lqua-matnr, i_lqua-werks.....
    append i_lqua.
    endselect.
    2. OR you can use INTO CORRESPONDING FIELDS OF TABLE
       select lquamatnr lquawerks... from lqua inner join mch1 into corresponding fields of table i_lqua.

  • Full screen keeps video size the same, fills the rest with black border

    I am having an issue when trying to watch olympics on the BBC website. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/2012/live-video
    When I click any video (live or archived), it gives options with three players to watch it in. According to the FAQ page on the site, the only way to get a true full screen experience (no letter boxing), is to use the "pop-out" player, then click full screen. When I do this, the picture size remains the same and goes to the upper left corner, with the rest of the screen filled with black (see attached photo). I have tried EVERYTHING. And by everything I have tried:
    Chrome, Firefox, IE, all with the most recent update and most recent flash player
    Tried reverting to a previous version of flash player
    Tried disabiling hardware accelaration
    Tried changing the screen resolution
    Tried using an external HDMI display
    Tried starting with a "clean" test windows user
    Tried updating my video card driver
    I have no idea what else to do, with the end goal of being able to stream the olympics for the next two weeks on my HDTV through HDMI. Please assist. thank you in advance

    Hi Willy:
    I just tried the link and got the same "can't show this" message as Pat,  but WAS able to call up the player by clicking on the yellow button near the bottom, marked "Watch the Film."
    I tried viewing it full screen by simply double-clicking in the center of the video and it displayed  full screen mode on my PC.  I'd guess that the video comes from the same source  as the streaming version.  I tried some of the other videos on the site and they all displayed full screen correctly.  I couldn't locate the "archived" videos you mentioned, though, to check them.
    Have you tried simply double-clicking the video to make it full screen?

  • Severe color posterization / patches and non functioning selection and fill tools - Mountain Lion

    I just got a new laptop (Apple Mac book pro with OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion) and a fresh installation of Adobe CS6 and Photoshop is practically unusable. The issues are that there is weird color banding across the full size image (it looks fine in the thumbnail preview in the ‘navigator’ tab). These bands move and change. Next, when I use the selection tool it selects weird shapes. And if I attempt to fill it, the fills are not the color, nor the transparency nor the shapes that I set. That means masks can’t be used and pretty much no editing is possible. Some blog posts describe a similar problem, and propose changing the ‘Performance’ preferences – but that didn’t fix it for me. 

    Funny thing...  Photoshop CS6 hasn't had a patch yet. 
    There have been patches to a couple of non-Photoshop components of the whole package, but we're all still awaiting the 13.0.1 update to the Photoshop application itself.
    What did this patch look like?
