Is there any way to pick an instance of an 'abstract' object by its UID?
I want to be able to do something like this:
Pick Instance of <AnyObject> with UID=123
<AnyObject> set Invisible
Object with UID=123 could be a Sprite, or a Text, or a SpriteFont etc.

No, because even if you could, there's no way to create an action on an "abstract" object. You have to create an action for a specific kind of object. The best you can do is add all objects to a family, and pick from that family by UID.
Just as I thought.. Thanks anyway, Ashley!
