While using the temporary hide/isolate tool, it would be nice if the modeled-in-place objects which have been isolated don't vanish once "edit" is hit. 

 

I understand that an object is in limbo, without a definite category when it's in edit mode, (I mean, this is where you set the category) thus not meeting the requirements to display... but surely someone can think of a way for this to be an exception for previously isolated families. 

 

It defeats the purpose of isolating all roofs, and/or generic models if they can't be worked on while isolated. 

 

selecting every object I want to isolate and choosing 'Isolate Selected Elements' is cumbersome, but the effect I want for my ease of work.   IE, not hiding new elements that are (technically) created out-of-category.  'Isolate Selected Elements' does not suppress newly revealed elements, whether by modifying a section box post-hide (this is a cool effect,) or by modifying a family.  IMO, since this is a temporary visual tool anyway, I think 'Isolate By Category' should ALSO be applied once, and revert to allow changes to what's displayed, like isolate by element. 

 

Anyone else had this little grievance?

I understand what you are saying about the Temporary / Hide Isolate becoming invalid once an element is "edited".

 

But to what you said about "selecting every object I want to isolate and choosing 'Isolate Selected Elements' is cumbersome"; is it easier to select one of the elements you wish to Hide or Isolate and use the Select All Instances tool.  Then continue selecting various elements by using the Ctrl Key.

 

I hope this helps.
