I made a color group of black and white objects. But it shows 3 different blacks and 1 gray and 1 white color in the swatch. How can I isolate or find/see those specific colours that are unwanted in my document? Or how can I delete/remove a specific color from an object? If the color is not to be seen?
With nothing selected in the artwork....
- Highlight a swatch in the Swatch Panel
Select > Same > Fill Colorfrom the menu
- The objects using that swatch for that fill color will become selected
- Merely click the swatch you want to use to replace that color
- Do the same again, de-select all, click the bad swatch... but this time choose
Select > Same > Stroke Colorto find strokes using that swatch
Note I suggest using
Fill Color and then
Stroke Color rather than
Fill & Stroke Color because this will better target the color use. If you have objects with varying fills, but the same stroke color,
Fill & Stroke Color won't pick up those objects. By specifically targeting the fill color, then the stroke color, you ensure you get all uses of that swatch color.
