Ctrl Key - Annoying and Unnecessary Change

I love the concept of the group edit system. If it worked right, it would be amazing.

Why, when you have lanes turned on, can you no longer use the ctrl key with multiple clicks to select multiple parts? Now the ctrl key forces the cursor to the speaker tool. If I want the speaker tool, I will select it. I want to be able to select multiple tracks, but I can’t using the ctrl key to do it. Since this is a new feature (group edit) I would imagine no one asked for that operational change, so … Why?
