Unfortunately I only have a partial fix for this everyone. Here are the steps, as painful as they are, they work for everything except getting your constant defines to show up...
1. I had to flatten all dimensions from the business view in the metadata.
2. I then created the parent field by right clicking and assigning a folder to the top level of the hierarchy as a parent. This puts that field in it's own folder and takes it out of the original dimension breakout.
3. Then you have to drag all other fields within the hierarchy, from the main dimension breakout and underneath that parent field.
4. You can then rename that parent folder to something that references your hierarchy so end users know where to find those fields you placed in the hierarchy now.
It’s important to do this on ALL hierarchies you want to build in your dimensions BEFORE you move onto the active master file synonyms.
4. Open up the active synonym (the file with the cluster joins if that's what you're using)
5. Reset Defaults from the BV+ view – select yes or ok when prompted to move folders.
6. Now your measures (fact group) and dimensions (all dimension joins) will show up, but you will still have to do quite a bit of massaging on the folders and moving fields into the correct place in order for your data to not be duplicated or split out randomly into newly named folders. Pain in the rear for sure, and could definitely be brought up to product enhancement as a do better. If your end users are like mine and really get used to how data is laid out, then this is a nightmare for them (and you) when you have to reorganize all of your data.
Doing all this makes hierarchies available for use, and I can now see all my fields as intended EXCEPT for our constant defines. These no longer show up and will only show up once I go back into the active synonym and hide all on the business view.
Doesn't seem to be a happy medium yet, but we're getting closer.
Hope this helps someone!
