AutoCAD – Isolate Selection

Another post in the series of Isolate Selection. A friend asked me is it also possible to isolate any object in AutoCAD?

It is since AutoCAD 2011 and it was even in earlier versions of Architectural Desktop.

The ISOLATEOBJECTS and the HIDEOBJECTS commands hide specific objects.
The UNISOLATEOBJECTS command restores hidden objects .

These commands are found in the right-click menu…isolate-menu

…or near the right end of the status bar.

It is also possible to add toolbar icons allowing to isolate and end object isolation  to any toolbar with Customize User Interface window.
