Thanks for the report, but you are mistaking which color it is about here - this tool operates on object's color (Object buttons, Display panel), not on the color resulting from some material shading.

Selecting by material could indeed be useful (will have a look at that), but by number of polygons… If we started this way, we would never end. And, btw, tracker is not the right place to make feature requests. ;)

Ah, actually, we already have a select by material, only it’s in the 'select by link' menu (shift-L). :)

I get it. Thank you mont29!

@Bastien Montagne (mont29)
I suggest to rename Shift+G 'color' to 'object color'.
Or add description 'object color'.

Best wishes!
