Is there a way to select all the text in the doent - Macromedia Freehand

Is there a way to select all the text in the doent without having to do the shift-click method? I have a fairly large roadmap to edit and I need to set the text so it is on top of everything else. Unfortunatly its all in one nice big layer. The shift clicking method will have me stuck clicking for hours and hours. Anything I can do to make it faster? Thanks....

    Go Edit > Find & Replace > Graphics > Select Panel > Font > Any.
    As you've probably guessed, constructing your map using layers in the first
    place will help with manipulation of various elements after the fact.

    Do I understand that all of the text is already on one layer? If so, in the
    Layers panel, drag the layer with the text to the top of the listed layers.

    Another tip -- you can select all on one layer with option-click (Mac) on
    the layer name in the Layers panel.

    Cheers Bill, thats exactly what I was looking for. I'm sure I had a look there
    before, but I guess I must have missed it.

    Sorry, I meant everythings on one layer, not just the text.
