I see that under the "Column Menu" > "Filter Item" section that there is a way to remove the filter button off a specific column, ie. by adding [filterable]="false" to your <kendo-grid-column-field> selector (https://www.telerik.com/kendo-angular-ui/components/grid/columns/menu/#toc-filter-item).
However, the way that I have my code arranged, I use <ng-template> to customize my columns, and use an *ngFor to populate my <kendo-grid-column> columns.
Example in the attached screenshot below:
Is there some way to remove the filter button using <ng-template>? I tried adding the [filterable="false" to my <ng-template> for the kendoGridFilterMenuTemplate, but it didn't seem to work.
