Make Isolate Selected Object work with text (point, area, on path)
Ai does not allow to isolate a text object.
We can workaround it by grouping it first, isolating, selecting all and ungrouping — but why execute these many useless operation instead of one?
Please make it possible.
Yep, the trick I usually use is to group, isolate, select all, ungroup.
And I agree it should be fixed.

Isolation mode is currently not available for ungrouped text objects, even though they function like any other layer. Double-clicking enters type tool (fine) but Isolation Mode is also grayed out on the layer menu. It would be useful to be able to use Isolation Mode for text objects (to edit frame shapes, etc.).
