I have a list which have a lot of data. I can filter list in standard view but when I use quick edit view, just some column can filtered. It's not display "show filter choice" when the column have too many choice. How can I fix that?
I can't comment yet, so I have to add an answer.
But basically I want to follow up on what Tally said, and say that I've found strange behaviour like this before, and what fixed it for me (apart from indexing) was that the filtering had to be in a particular order. (the indexed filter first)
For instance - if I filtered first by "column A is not empty" then "indexed column > date", it would sometimes have symptoms like you described, but if I filtered first by "indexed column > date" then "column A is not empty", it would be happy.
My guess is that because "column A is not empty" filters down to still over threshold, before the indexed filter takes to under threshold, it bugs out.
