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.
Kevin, so you mean the button is not there in Control panel?
Well, it does not mean 'Isolation mode won’t work', right? It still does work if you double-click (if the option to allow it is enabled in Preferences), it still does work if you press an Isolate Selected Object hotkey (which is not assigned by default, but can be in Keyboard Shortcuts). Or does it?
That’s why I asked for the video in the first place, to see what you actually do to enter the mode :)
If you confirm this, this would have to be renamed and moved to a Feature Request section as 'Show Isolate Selected Object button in Control and Properties for groups with live text inside' — and I will vote for that, because it makes sense. Please comment back.
This is still an issue that isn't working.
I'm NOT on Windows like Egor - maybe it works fine there.
When selecting a group the isolate selected object button appears in the menu bar and objects are able to be used as isolated objects. - if there is any live text, it does NOT appear and is not available.
Now on v26.5 Mac OS ~ 12.5.1(Edited by admin)
Doesn't work for me either. Have to deselect text or outline. Makes it very difficult when text is in a group.

Does work for me, latest Windows release.
