Web Url Conditional Formatting - Unable to Select Field

I can't figure out what is going on. I have a column in my model with a url. I've even created the url as a custom column and a measure but expereince the same issue. 


The url fields in quesiton have been set to Data Category: Uncategorized


When I open the Web Url Conditional Formatting my windows always opens and the 'Based on field' is red and I'm unable to selected any fields (Columns, custom columns, measures). It also looks like I'm missing the drop down for Summarization.  Now I can click the drop down and it will list out all the tables and columns but everything is greyed out. 




That said, If i create a new PBIX and choose "Enter Data' and add 2 columns (name, url) and add those to the report I am able to format the web url. So it's not that I can't get this to work but I can't get it to work in my current report. 


For what it's worth, it doesn't look like this is just an issue with the Web URL. If I select a column for icons my based on field is also red and I can't select anything. However, I already have fields in the same table that have icons. 



Somthing strang is going on.  I've rebooted my machine, closed and reopened the file. 


Ideas? Thoughts?
