1. While in Design mode, click the Explorer button in the tool bar
2. Select Forms from the panel
3. Open a form to modify
4. Right click on an object (in Windows) or Control + click (in MacOS) to show the contextual menu
5. Choose the Select Similar Objects command

All objects of the same type are selected and ready for modification.
