  1. Select all in an isolated group selects and allows to move locked and hidden objects

    Imagine a group. Let's isolate it and hide one object, lock another, and leave the third one as it is. Ctrl+A to select all and then move the selection. Illustrator then moves all the objects, despite it does not behave like this on canvas.

    If you check layers, you’ll see that Illustrator targets all children (double circle markers) but not a parent (the recent fix), and selects all objects including the parent (big square markers).

    If you try to move the selection, all objects get moved.

    This is not what happens if we try to select objects on canvas, locked…

  2. Isolation Mode Will not work if live text is in a group

    If a group contains live editable text (ie-non outlined text) I cannot enter isolation mode unless that text is deselected.

  3. Ghost shadows/projections when isolating a group

    Sometimes when isolating a group (double clicking) and zooming in, a strange ghost offset projection across all the screen appears, and it slides across the screen when dragging through the workspace.
    I remember it used to happen in Ai 2019, stopped happening in Ai 2020 and now it came back. BUT I have not had this issue occurred between the Ai 2021 release and the macOS Big Sur update so I am not sure what the cause could be, and that's what's tricky, it only happens SOMETIMES and I haven't found any pattern about it.

  4. Select Same Stroke Color doesn't work in isolated Live Paint group

    When you make Live Paint group out of differently colored strokes and then you want to select only e.g. red strokes, while isolated, then Select Same commands are grayed out.

  5. Paste remembers layers bug with isolation mode

    If you choose the option Paste Remembers Layers and copy elements when in Isolation Mode and paste these after exiting Isolation Mode, they appear on a new layer named "Isolation Mode". They should appear on their parent layer instead.
