Is it possible to select all objects that have a particular material assigned to them?

E.g. if I have many objects that use the same material and I want to select them for Copy to Selected, how can I do this?

Object mode: Select > Select linked > Material or ShiftL > Material.

Edit mode: Select face that has the material applied to: Select > Select Similar > Material or ShiftG > Material

enter image description here

  1. Download the Material Utilities addon
  2. Select all objects with A
  3. Access Material Utilities ShiftQ. Select "Select by Material".
  4. Choose the material you want to select by
