Solution TitleWhy can't I select a tiling pattern?
Solution Number00000798
Solution Details
I cannot select a tiling pattern.

A tiling pattern is a color space and are basically forms that are repeated to fill up an object. The tiling pattern content is similar to form content. So if you have a rectangle filled with a tiling pattern, you can select the objects that make up the tiling pattern by first selecting the rectangle and then using the action “Select tiling pattern content if parent object is selected."

You can create an Action List as shown below.  The selection should be as shown, then you can add any type of change action. The example is to convert to CMYK but you could use any change action.
