T51710: Make categories more required-looking
T112764: Replace CoolCats with mw.widgets.CategorySelector
@Henry_Salome: Thanks for reporting this!
Wondering if that's related to T51710: Make categories more required-looking and/or T112764: Replace CoolCats with mw.widgets.CategorySelector.
What does "does not accept nonexistent categories" mean exactly? What are the steps that you perform on which website and with which browser, and what happens exactly? See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_report_a_bug for more general information. Thank you!

Step : Describe
Previously, we could type the name of a new category for the uploaded file, the uploader answered something like : "Category not yet used" but the category was accepted and we could create it after the uploading.
Now, since today, a new keying box is proposed with categories aligned horizontally (instead of several boxes aligned vertically) and the only categories accepted are existing ones.
For instance, for several photos of a church, I could key the category "Our Lady church of XXX" (not yet used) and copy it with the "magic" copy tool in the description of the next photos.
Now I had to create first the category in a new tab and come back to the uploading tab, key the category for the first photo and copy it with the "magic" copy tool.
@Aklapper : I'm uploading images since nearly 10 years, first on 08/25/2006 ([https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Henry_Salom%C3%A9 my user page). Ich verstehe daß Sie das für die neuen Benutzer gemacht haben. Ich werde nach "Upload your own work" zurückkehren.
No, thank you for filing this, this is definitely a problem that we weren't aware of. If it wasn't clear to you, it won't be clear to other people, who unlike you won't report it, but just leave disgruntled. :)
