Download Manager: category box missing


for some days ( I think, there was an update?) the category box is missing when creating or editing a download. It could be longer and I just did not see it before, I haven’t added a download for weeks.

The box is missing and i also cannot activate it (see it) through Settings -> Preferences.

Is it just me? Can anybody help?

Things I tried:

  • deleting cache
  • deactivating ALL other plugins
  • removing ALL code from my functions.php
  • replacing the plugin folder with a new download from here
  • tried version 3.2.66 and 3.2.55
  • different browser
  • different user
  • different (default) theme

    Any ideas?

    Thank you, Martina.
