When I think of Indesign and editing/ type setting, I use character and paragraph styles. These functions are extraordinarily useful when you get into formatting/adjusting styles over many pages etc.
Is there a way to do this in illustrator with objects? For example, I have a number of abstract shapes that are comprised of multiple objects of different colors. I want to change all the shapes that are red to green for example without having to select each individually.
Here's what I know and what I don't know. I know I could use symbols if the "symbols" where the same and edit the one symbol to change the rest etc. I also cannot group the objects due to the position within the rest of the composition.
Question: What is the most efficient way to change multiple shapes at once that are not grouped and are not symbols?
