Sorry for the confusion! Looks like one perspective is built on Planning mode, while the other is built on Context mode. The two modes display your information slightly differently.

In planning mode, organization is hierarchical, so you can break big tasks into smaller component tasks and see the relationships between everything.

In context mode, the intent is for you to just work on checking off actions. Do A, then do B, then do C; the relationships aren't as important in this mode. (David Allen describes this state as "mind like water".)

To try and help you do that, Context mode shows you everything as a flat list, with the stuff you can check off first at the top of the list. Start at the top, work your way to the bottom, and when you get there, you're done.

That's why you're seeing the row for the action group listed below the items it contains - working top to bottom, you'd check them off, then check off the group. Ditto for the project appearing below the items in that project. (That's also why those rows are appearing in the grey "unavailable" color.)

General principle: once you check off the items in the container, the container row becomes available and you can check it off, too.
