Not that I know of. I have run into this before. If you click on a particular item, such as text, and then select all, it will select everything of the same properties, which may not be what you desire. The olny way that I have been able to select all is to go to a 3d view, do a crossing window, and then go to each view, hold down the CTRL key and make sure that select everything from view to view. It takes awhile, but this is the only thing that I have figured out.
Not sure if this helps. Like I said, I have run into times where I need to select everything and it just takes time in the end. Good luck
