Context Selectors in Mangement Reporting


In a Management Reports, unlike UX pages, it's not possible to filter a context selector. But selectors in MR by default are set as Sync level:Global. So I thought by creating a UX page with the same context but now with that context filtered to a single item, that same filtered item would sync in the Managment Report. Alas it doesn't. It only sync's if,in the UX page, I go through the motion of selecting the single already filtered item. This seems wrong to me. Hope I'm making sense, is there a work-a-round?
