This question already has an answer here:

Is there a way to select all the polygons within a mesh having a size similar to a given one.

The idea was to have an automatic selection of all the polygons within a range of size similar to one you select.

I think it could be done by scripting something using polygon.select and polygon.area, but I have no idea how to start.

I am not a coder but if someone gave me good indications and it is not going to be particularly difficult I could try to make a script.

Thanks in advance!
