Bug: Select Objects by Material not working from Properties

I have bunch of objects with material set to ByObject.
When right-clicking the material in Object Properties -> Material dialog ‘Select Object(s)’ - nothing happens.
When I do the same from Material Editor (same material) - all object with that material get selected.
It is much easier to select object that has the given material than looking for the same material in Material Editor, especially in scenes with 1000s of materials.

thanks

Hi Jarek- that does work here, so far. Can you post or send me a file with a few objects that do not behave?

Thanks,

Hi Pascal,

Here is the file: for example try the tablecloth object - both SelMaterialName and Material Editor’s select objects work well, but not doing the same via material in Object Properties…

thanks,

Hi Jarek - I see it- thanks- still digging.
If I make a new material, it works.
If I edit the material for one selected tablecloth, the other tablecloths do not change…

Dunno- making a bug report for the bigger brains… http://mcneel.myjetbrains.com/youtrack/issue/RH-31025

Thanks-- this model is imported from SKP format - maybe this is messing sth up…
