There's no need to reselect objects in Illustrator when you can save your selections for quick access later on.
- [Instructor] One of the things that I find…very frustrating is when I have to select things…more than once to adjust them.…That just kinda comes with the territory…when working in Illustrator, but there's ways…that you can save your selections in Illustrator…so that you can quickly select items…that you wanna use again or modify again, later on.…What I'm gonna do here is in this file,…I'm gonna select one of these chevrons like I did before…and I'm gonna go to select, same, fill color.…
That was not too hard, but if I have to keep going up there…every single time, that could become more frustrating.…And not only that, not everything is that easy to select.…I'll show you that in a second.…With these objects selected, one of the things…I'm gonna do is go to the select menu…and I'm gonna choose save selection.…I'm just gonna call this chevrons and I'm gonna click OK.…The other thing I can do is I can select…some of these other elements, like let's say for example,…I wanna be able to select all of the type elements.…
