FMP12 - Drag Select captures locked item


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

Drag selecting items in layout mode now captures locked items also

Steps to reproduce the problem

I have a tab control that I lock so I can do layout work on top of it.  Attempting to drag-select items in order to group them results in the locked item included in the select

Expected result

As in previous version of FMP, a locked background item was not selected, thus inadvertently included in a group


One must consciously deselect the locked background item before grouping the rest of the selected items.
