Usually we must select (at least) one face enter image description here

and then "Select Linked Faces" to get selected like this enter image description here

Is there any way to select linked flat faces directly once you click on face?

like Alt + LMB to select edge loop quickly.

[EDIT] Here the example that what I mean, that is selection feature on rizomUV. but its possible to do that in blender? enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ Go to Linked Flat Faces in the Select Linked menu, right-click on it and choose Assign Shortcut to create your own shortcut. That's the easiest and quickest way I know. $\endgroup$ Commented May 29, 2021 at 16:36
  • $\begingroup$ @JachymMichal But Ctrl + L selects all linked faces, not only the flat ones. $\endgroup$ Commented May 29, 2021 at 16:38
