File seems to be permanently stuck in isolation mode resulting in many objects being unselectable
Basically was doing a simple school project activated isolation mode and deactivated it quickly while doing this the application became unresponsive and crashed and the recovered file still had this effect persist with only one line selectable It cannot be turned off
I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 25.1 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.
You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html
Thank you for all the feedback. Keep it coming!

In the Layers palette flyout menu, choose the Unlock All Layers command. In the Layers palette you can see four small circles (right-handside) that are marked with a grey fill. Click on the target circles (one by one) and while they are selected go to the Transparency palette and set the opacity to 100 %
It happened to me too. Pretty frustrating but I found a better tip. Go to File-> Version History -> Find the time before isolation - Pres on the three dots-> Revert to this version.... Hope this help :-)

even though , i am not sure if this will help any one, but what i did was i opened layer option, there was certain layers locked, unlocked it, and selected everything and pasted on new art board, (copy and paste from artboard option, to save some time )
I have the same problem. I wish Adobe would get the kinks worked out before releasing new version!

Kurt Gold suggests these steps to reproduce the bug:
Create a blank document.
Draw some circles.
Select one of them and enter Isolation Mode (at the object level) via right-click.
Move (or scale) the circle.
Quit Isolation Mode.
Again Cmd+Z (Undo).

I kinda...solved my file.
Copied it and opened again (problem still there) then I went to the layers and created a new one and dragged everything to the new one (which meant a lot of work afterwards) and deleted all the others. The object that got me stuck on isolation mode was lost but I finally can work on the file.
I had to remake the object I lost but luckily, this time, wasn't a very complex one. As every was jointed in a layer I had to separate them all again and organize everything again.
So...not a solution but I'd call it a quick fix. :) Hope this helps since adobe itself has said or done nothing about it.
I had exactly the same problem, already three times in different documents since I updated Adobe Illustrator a few days ago. It seems to be a bug in the document itself since the problem doesn’t disappear if somebody else opens it. Even save with a new name or restart the programm doesn’t help. Extremely frustrating.
I right-clicked an item on my artboard and entered isolation mode. Afterward, I double-clicked away and now everything except my previously selected item is stuck in that semi-transparent state even though illustrator tells me I am no longer in isolation mode. I have tried selecting the item and right-clicking to click the exit option but it's not available. I tried closing the document and then re-opening it but it just opened in isolation mode again. This file is basically a throwaway now which is frustrating. I've attached some images showing my issue.
Same on Windows 10.

I've been working in Adobe products for over 15 years - know Illustrator like the back of my hand, and this just happened to me. It's 1000% a bug.
I also just went in to isolation mode, and then it seemed to "get stuck" where I couldn't select anything. I saved and rebooted - still nothing. Saw this fix, and... wah-lah, somehow the opacity got stuck at 50% and the layers were separated and locked.
I'm having same issue since last update (Illustrator 25.0 - MacOS 10.14.6)
It nests and dim all layers under a new <layer>.
Many times it freezes and have to quit.
Same here. I'm having the same issue on both Windows and Mac since I upgraded to Illustrator 2021.
Another problem is that when this happens, Illustrator freezes so I have to force quit. After Illustrator and the file are reopened, the last (damaged) version is saved which means that sometimes a lot of the hard work that was done is gone.
Productivity is affected. Please solve this bug as soon as possible.
Experienced this just now.. Silly bug. To solve, I have saved the file as SVG (or exported it to), and retrieved my assets from this format. I hope this helps you salvage yours.
I've figure out that bug happens while on Isolation mode you perform a lot of "undos". While Adobe doesn't update Illustrator 2021 with proper correction, the only work around is downgrade to Illustrator 2020. Sorry but you lost your academic work. Avoid this new version for a while
this is project for my class, lemme know if it's the same bug or i'm just stupid, i used the isolation mode couple of times and now it's just stuck.................. wasting a lot of time...
Same problem here, got the layers back from isolation mode by selecting all paths with the white arrow and then grouped the object.
Same here with the new 2021 version, hope we can have a fix on next update!
Same problem here with latest Illustrator 2021. Any idea of bug fix?
