Grouping items in Layout mode auto locks them?

Hello,

So in a previous version of Filemaker Pro, I could use the group feature to take several items in Layout mode and group them together. Usually Cmd+R. I could then move the group around on the layout and interact with them as see fit. This was Filemaker 12. I recently installed a copy of Filemaker 14 and although this feature is still in place, I have to proceed with a second step; I have to unlock the group. It seems that every time I group a series of items together, Filemaker automatically locks them and forces me to unlock using the Inspector tool. Now, this wouldn't be that big of a problem, especially with quick keys for unlocking (Its like, Cmd+Shift+Alt+U or something) but I would prefer a way to remove this auto lock altogether. Is it possible and if so, how do I set this?
