The first Graffix plugin for Illustrator CS6, Select Menu, is now available. Another update is coming for CC versions, soon after other plugins are updated. The next version of Select Menu is expected to add other object types, such as point text and area text. As always, this version is free!
Update: Separate versions are needed for 32- or 64-but versions for Windows.
If you find Select Menu useful, but long for more options, you may want to check out Hot Door Software’s NitPicker panel. It allows you to select art items according to an array of criteria, and save those settings for future custom searches.
