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:

Please add this feature! Would be much use for..
I strongly support! Much needed!!!
PLEASE DO THIS!
this would be such a great update!
This would be very handy! I regularly get sent lot plan files that I need to edit. These can have 100+ lots on them and each of those lots has border, lot number and area dimensions. Being able to group select all the border dimensions based on the font size instead of having to individually select 300+ text items would make grouping them a LOT easier.

Jotham - it really isn't any help for the complexity of compositions I work on. There's Select/Object/All Text Objects but that's not much help either... I need much more configurable selection parameters than either of these presently allow, particularly for type (though other objects and variable as well).
Now than they've fixed the script/action bug in Illustrator 2018 I can at least bind a key for an action that runs a script to select same typeface and size...
This is under type - find fonts isn't it?
