Isolate Selected Objects without having to group them
In my work flow, I find I would like to isolate more than one object for something, and not necessarily a whole layer. Currently I have to group two or three objects first to do this. I'd like to see being able to isolate selected objects without having to group them first.

How about if they at least gave a hotkey option for isolate mode. Illustrator dev team has no idea how to streamline a workflow. Illustrator is the most unnecessarily tedious program I've ever used and it gets worse with every update. Selection tools are so wonky and unreliable. Like using a butter knife to cut a steak.

Wish if they paid attention to such subtle details like just creating one object and pathfinding with a main one and not deleting them afterwards. Like CorelDraw if I remember correctly. These small details make workflow much easier and faster.
Missing this for long-long time. Grouping is an option, but this will mess up the layers when used. A lot of times I have duplicated artboards for design iteration with similar objects and I would just like to select similar objects on one artboard, not on all of them. Just selecting the objects on one artboard and isolating would do the trick, but for some reason more than one object could not be isolated.
********** "limit to current artboard would also work, but doesn't exist for now :(

Even when a hotkey for Isolation mode is set, is still doesn't allow you to isolate custom set of objects. Surely voting this.
