No -- That ability was removed from the Python API in Archicad release 24. An alternate workaround, probably unacceptable, is to interrogate for the status of a custom property to identify which element is of interest.

Thank you Gerry, I was afraid of that... 

Isn't that a severe lack of feature?

yes. a very simple logical feature is to be able to select things and run the script on. 

I made a new thread in the wishes forum about this.
