Qlik sep 2017: 'greying out' lines in line chart when coloring by dimension

I've just updated to the Qlik Sense Sep. 2017 version, an has run into an issue with my line charts. I'm not sure whether this is a bug or just a undesirable feature:

I have a line-chart with an expression where I ignore the current selection on the field 'Year'. I looks something like this:

sum({<

    Year=

>}Sales)


In my line chart I also have the dimensions Month ('Jan', 'Feb', etc) and the lines are colored by the Year dimension, making me a nice chart showing me a line for each year with each their own color.

So here's the issue: when I select a specific year, let's say 2017, the chart will still show me a line for each year, though, only the 2017-line will have a color - all the other lines will be light grey, making it impossible to compare the sales on a year-to-year basis.

It seems like, the coloring are ignoring the 'Year=' part of my script, though the lines are including it.

This issue wasn't there before I updated to the Sep. 2017 version.

I can totally follow you on this one, and I get the same behavior.

It's like the coloring doesn't respect the set analysis. Also the legend removes the description of the years, that has not been selected.

The attached app is an simple example using the test script.

Dim3 does here indicate the Year.

Would like to select a value in Dim3 while maintaining all there lines and their color in the chart.
