I want to delete all the white parts in this QR code. Is there a way to make Illustrator select all white parts and delete them, do I need to delete them manually?

    That is a pretty shoddy Image Trace of a QR code, by the way. You may want to use this trick to get a better result.

  • If this is a trace, you can choose the ignore white option in the trace options.

  • Click one with the Direct Selection Tool (white arrow)
  • Choose Select > Same > Fill & Stroke
  • Hit Del
  1. Double click the Magic Wand tool to open its settings:Illustrator toolbox with Magic Wand and its options pointed out
  2. Tick the 'Fill Color' option and set the Tolerance to a low number, ~4.
  3. Use the same tool to click on one of the white objects. This will select all white objects.
  4. Press Delete or Backspace.

If you don't see the Magic Wand in your toolbox, Choose Window > Toolbars > Advanced first.
