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

Another way would be this:

  1. in the Outliner set "Display Mode" to "Blender File" ( in the top, the dropdown menu next to the "Editor Type" dropdown)
  2. there should be a list with all materials (in the top is search bar)
  3. right-click on the material and select "Select Linked" from the context menu (Be aware that hidden Objects will not be selected)
