Description andreas_k 2019-07-17 23:06:47 UTC
In inkscape you can search via right click for shapes with the same area, line, area + line style so it's easy to change the style of all shapes with the same style.

select elements with the same style would be also usefull for writer where you can add this option into the right click menu.

I need this behaviour to change with one single click the style of all shapes which is very usefull when you make templates/gallery items cause you can't fit the template for the specific coler composition and I don't want to end up to have 6 time the same gallery item only cause the color is different. with select all shapes with color red it will be easy and fast to change everything to any other color.

We do this via Find & Replace > Attributes in Writer, however restricted to font/character properties. Could imagine something similar in Draw or we utilize the Navigator as discussed in bug 90244 or bug 89566 and of course in 

Similar request to highlight direct formattings in bug 106556 commented also with search. Any other implementation would be a major revamp, I guess.

If we continue, we have to define what "select" means select one after another, multi-selection, highlight in the Navigator, and the scope meaning current or all pages.

No further input, so let's remove UX keyword.

Multi-selection should be done by search for attributes working on all pages.
