Olympus macro won't work on Panasonic GX1

I bought an Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro for my Panasonic GX1. My understanding is that 4/3 lens are interchangeable with 4/3 cameras.

When I look at the Gx1's LCD, I can focus using macro. When I press the shutter half way down, I see a normal image without macro. When I take the pic, the resulting image is normal 60mm instead of macro. I bought this lens for my wife so she could use the macro feature with her GX1. Is there a way to switch from normal to manual focus for macro?

Not sure where to go from here.
