Fields shown in filter drop down

I find that there are way too many fields available to filter through when trying to find a particular document (for example in Sales Invoices).  While this is more a usability concern than anything else, I was wondering if there was any way to manually hide a field from being included in the filter list.

The "in filter" toggle in customize form is for dialog box searches only I believe, not when searching for something in List view.

Or is this simply a permissions thing? As long as user has perm level to access the field, user will be able to filter that particular field?
