I did a drawing using Draw, then exported to PDF. The PDF had some extraneous objects in it, so I was trying to figure out where they came from. The first step is to see if there are any objects that are hidden (behind something else, or a color the same as the background, etc.) in the source drawing. How do I do that? Select All doesn't seem to help.

1.  create a copy of the file
2.  rename the file-ending from .ods to .zip
3. open with an archive-manager (on Gnu&Linux you might be able to skip step 2 but if not then just double-clicking on the .zip should open it)
4.  inside the zipfile is a folder called something like "images".
5.  open each image in turn until you find the bad ones and delete them

But these are (presumably) Draw objects, not images.
