What to do
- Make the category lookup menu (but not the entry field) wider
- Make the category lookup menu display the number of pages per category item:

Why we're doing this
1. Widening the menu
As you can see in the screenshot below, there is also something of a display issue that happens when category names are long—as seems to be fairly common.
2. Adding the page totals
There are a lot of categories for which users have made bogus upper-case versions to serve as a kind of category redirect. E.g., Living people/Living People or African-American artists/African-American Artists (in both cases, the lower-case name is the real one). If users make the wrong choice during event setup, they may have a hard time figuring out why they aren't getting the metrics they expected.
Unfortunately, there is no technical way to pre-identify and exclude bogus categories. So instead, we propose to give users a clue as to which are the real categories by providing a count of the number of pages each category contains.
