Quickly select similar objects based on styling

In OmniGraffle, it’s easy to select similarly styled lines and shapes to modify their attributes, move them all at once, or reorder them across layers or canvases.

Say you’ve got a few hundred shapes that all have a three-pixel-thick double stroke that you want to move to their own layer. And you also have a few hundred shapes with a two-pixel-thick single stroke. You definitely don’t want to select them one by one as they’re scattered all over a vast (nearly infinite!) canvas.

By selecting just one of those shapes and clicking Similar Objects from the Select contextual menu or menu bar, OmniGraffle will do a little math, find exactly the shapes that share similarities, and select them all.
