There is a "Select" sub menu under the "Object" menu where you can chose "Next Object" or "Previous Object". However you cannot decide to execute that on a specific type of object (e.g. text frames). But you can apply keyboard shortcuts.
The order is not the geometric order based on left to right etc., but the building order of the elements and constrained to the active layer and the active spread. So, if your text frames are all on a distinct layer, you could use this feature very well spread wise.
If you want to select a specific type of object one after another without layer or spread barrier, someone has to write a script for it ;-) Or, there is already a script out in the wild… Don't know…
Thanks for answering my question, I think your right, a script is my best bet, now to learn how to write a script or call in a favour....
You can assign a shortcut to thhis submenu command.
