    Reproducing the Issue

    1. Create a report with two similar queries.
    2. Apply merge dimension on it.
    3. When one object is selected in the merged dimension, the other objects are grayed out.
    4. Save the report.
    5. Select one object.
    6. After saving the report the other objects are not grayed out.


    This issue is not observed in BI 4.0 SP04.

    Those Objects might be coming from a Universe which is linked to the current universe.

    Goto the Parameters -> Links and see if it shows any universe.
