Categories field displays when no categories exist and user can't add new
As a user with no access to create new categories, create a new ticket in a project with no categories. The category drop down displays, although no options exist. It probably shouldn't show, much like target version doesn't display when no options are there.
Do not show Category field when categories are not defined.

True, I knewn about that. But it also hides the field for those who do not want to use categories at all.
You can create a first set of categories in project settings then use the shortcut when one is missing.
I think it's pretty fair?
Yeah, the remaining issue of not being able to initiate categories from the new issue page is certainly of a much lower priority. I'm willing to ignore it for now. ;)
