Re: Select Hide Utility plug-in
Congratulations for your first plug-in smile

It's great that your plug-in provides some missing selection features and I've been wondering myself for a while how adding some Select all walls, Select all rooms, etc menu items could be useful.
About searching furniture by name, it coud be nice to look for the furniture inside groups and subgroups. If programming a recursive method is too complicated, you could also use the getAllFurniture method in HomeFurnitureGroup class.
About searching windows, it looks like you search them from their name, but then it will work only if the furniture name contains "window" word, making this option misleading compared to the Doors option which selects all doors and windows.

And why did you choose to provide two different actions (selecting and hiding/showing) in one dialog box with tabs? I wonder if it would be clearer to program two menu different items...
