How to select multiple paths that are adjacent in the layers window?


Given the following setup:


How can I quickly select all orange circles in Layer 1 in order to edit them, as shown here:


It seems like this should be somehow possible through the layers window, but when I shift-click they're being only highlighted, not properly selected. Obviously I want to avoid shift-clicking each and every one of them, and I also do not mean any Select->Same->Fill color commands.

Lock Layer 2.

Select 1 orange circle and choose Select > Same > Fill & Stroke

Unlock layer 2 if needed.

You'll need to explain why select same is not a viable solution since it does work and is the quickest method.

If you are restricted to only using the Layers Panel, I'm afraid shift-clicking the circle to the right of the object name is the only method I'm aware of.
