How To Select Similar Colors in Illustrator

Sometimes, when working on a detailed illustration you need to select all similar colors on a page. I used to hold the select button and click on every area. This was time consuming and often ended in me missing some color sections. I discovered a solution!

1. Select one shape that contains the color you wish to select.
2. Click on the Select tab on the top tool bar.
3. Hover over "Same"
4. Click on "Fill Color"

This will allow you to change every selected element to another color. Saves lots of time!
