Ignoring filter in a chart

How to have a chart or table really ignore a filter selection?    Yes,  set analysis will ignore the filter in the calculated results, for example to ignore the filter 'colors':

count({<colors=>}Potatoes )

But when the user filters on colors, the chart will still recalculate the count of all Potatoes.  It simply comes up with the same results it had before recalculating.

How do you avoid having the chart recalculate at all,  useful when the chart is slow and  'colors' is only associated to Potatoes due to an outer join and will not affect the chart results?

Hi,

Might using an alternate state stop the recalculation?
