    Description

      We have an upgraded installation from 1.9, with per-category course creator roles. If these course creators try to create new courses with an url like this (https://moodleurl/course/edit.php?category=18&returnto=category), the Availability field only displays "This course is available to students", there's no drop-down box at all. Our default setting for new courses is "Not available for students".

      If they go on creating the course, they can later change availability from the settings, but initially it stays open.
