I have created a scene with a lot of objects and I'd like to clean up the project. My question is: how can I find out which objects share the same color?

enter image description here

There are 2 objects that share the same color, 1 object is the cube but where is the second Object?

    $\begingroup$ Do you want to know which objects use the same Material, as shown in the screenshot, or which objects have the same color assigned to, e.g. the Principled BSDF? $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Feb 15 at 10:15
  • $\begingroup$ Hi @Robert-Gützkow, I will know who Object share the color! I cant find the second Object $\endgroup$ – 73district Feb 15 at 10:18
  • $\begingroup$ You can use the outliner and search for the material name in the display filter. $\endgroup$ – lemon Feb 15 at 10:23

    $\begingroup$ The indicator for the number of users, as marked with red in your screenshot, is for the users of a material, in this case for the material testfarbe. Please select one object with the material and then try Select > Select Linked > Material. Does that give you the desired result? $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Feb 15 at 10:24

You can use the outliner to filter the scene collection by name.

So you can use it in order to search using the material name.

Once done select all the filtered objects using A in the outliner.

  • $\begingroup$ That's an even better approach when you want to know the object's name. $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Feb 15 at 11:02

You can press shift+L, then press T, click on materials and check the screen where all objects are listed and find which object is also selected (while being in Object Mode).
