    I am using UI for ASP.NET MVC R3 2016 and I have enabled the column menu to allow for showing/hiding of columns.  That resulted in the filter getting moved into this menu as well.  I'm not crazy about that, but I could accept that if the filtering worked in the column menu.  The problem is I can't just open the column menu, open filter and click on the textbox in the filter menu, the entire thing closes.  However, if I first select a type of filter (starts with, etc.) and then go to the textbox it works.  While it is a workaround it is not an acceptable one.  The problem exists in Chrome but in Edge it seems to behave correctly.

    This behavior can be observed by going to http://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/grid/column-menu.  Try to filter on Ship Name without first selecting a filter type.

    Hello James,

    The described issue is observable in the latest (55) version of Google Chrome. Their newly introduced support for pointer events interfered with our internal logic for the Kendo UI Menu, which in turn leads to the undesired behavior.

    The issue is already fixed, and you can expect the working version with our next 2017 R1 release, scheduled for the third week of January.

    Meanwhile you can use the following workaround - handle the columnMenuInit event, get access to the menu, and focus an item in the Filter sub-menu programmatically on open:

    I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.
