Select same fill colour: Make a selection

Here we have a wavy background consisting of multiple repeating colours. Yellow, blue, orange, brown. Wouldn’t it be neat to select all the yellow objects at once and change the colour quickly? Yes!

First of all select the yellow object.

Additionally we can also select object types. Simply select one object then go to Edit-select same-object. All similar objects will become selected regardless of colour. 

Why would we want this? Because perhaps we want to move all of these items away from other items. Also it is used to change colour or modify shape at the same time.
