Select > Same > Font (Size/ Style/ Typeface / Size& Style / Size and Typeface)
Extend the select menu items to include options for selecting type variations.

Mark and Manuel, I completely agree. It seems we get endless updates showing us how we can draw hummingbirds with transparent wings over a river containing lillypads, but we can't get actual, useful tools to do what pays the bills. These requests are simple, direct and should be easy to deploy from a development standpoint. I don't know why they are continually ignored, for years on end.
Oh. And as a side beef, I'm updating 150 charts from a report that's two years old, and you can just IMAGINE the fun I'm having with the ca. 2005 technology that drives the charting engine. It's an absolute blast. Not.

I understand Mark.
I guess you are right. I am just a bit ****** off and surprised about the lack of attention or resources Adobe is able to put to fix these issues especially when I compare it with what the Blender community is doing with Blender and the pace at which they are improving their software.
Probably it can not be compared but I wish it would be an InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop Blender-like community.
Thanks for your comment Mark.

Manuel - I'm not holding out any hope whatever of Adobe paying attention to this. As far as they're concerned it's a trivial matter to make search and select scripts. In fact, at this stage, I'd consider it a bit of a piss-take if they were to address this feature before addressing the more fundamental problems with accessing features through the document object model. For instance, any appearance settings on an object beyond a single stroke and a single fill are inaccessible (including extra strokes and fills, all effects and arrowheads). Graphic styles are only half implimented generally, and are useless via scripting. And so on...
At least with features like this we can sort ourselves out :|

Any comments or we should trust in Script and plugin developers as always?
Is there any update from developer's?
Come on Adobe!
It's been 3 years since this comment was posted.

Very useful, please implement it!
This would be extremely useful, please consider this.

This would be a very helpful addition but in its absence I have found after testing different script solutions that the set of scripts developed by Nick Springer work well for me. This is the download link:
and this is the forum post that contains the thread:
