Cannot add a new property to a grid in the Grid Editor in Enterprise Performance Management Architect (EPMA).

Attempting to add a new property as follows results in an error:

1. Open the Grid Editor in EPMA by right-clicking on a dimension in the Application
2. Define a grid view by choosing what members to display using an iDescendants or Descendants statement, and choosing one or more properties to display. The grid then displays.
3. Right-click the grid on a existing property column heading -> Add Property
4. An error message in a pop-up window displays:

"Communication Error. There was a communication error processing the expansion."

Consequences: Cannot customize grid editor view. Grid editor must be closed and reopened to recover. Initial grid view does not produce error, only changes to the properties visible in an existing view.
