Filtering by category doesn't work

My templates are releated to categories. When the modal dialog in editor opens I view a list of all templates which their category on top. As far as good. But when I use the category search feature I get a blank list only.

My settings: Joomla 3.6.5, PHP 7.0.15, MySQL 5.6 - default Joomla installation with RL extensions only

Not sure what you mean.

Can you give me (super) admin access so I can take a look?
And tell me what steps I need to make to see/reproduce the issue.
You can use the 'Hidden text' button in the forum editor to hide the confidential information.

I am working in an intranet where remote access is not allowed but you can reproduce this issue alone with a default Joomla 3.6.5 installation with your extensions only.

I make some tests and get this issue when I set access rights (see my previous request with the access issue) to a template: 1. In ACCESS tab in Content Settings and/or 2. Setting USERGROUPS in Publishing Assignments. Without any access limitations it works - with access rights: I get a blank modal view which shows the text: "Category" instead of the selected one.

Again: I get this error in a default Joomla installation - nothing else installed either your extensions. You do not need remote access.

Yes and no: limitation to access rights works (with dev version 7.0.3) - filtering by category not.

I still get a blank dialog (modal view) when I select a category which includes templates with access limitations.

Yes, but the button itself should now no longer show when there are no templates available for the user...

That's right. Also the list shows the allowed templates only. But searching/filtering by category is still an issue.

I installed meanwhile a test website - Joomla 3.6.5 with RL extensions - go here:

I do not understand the issue you are describing.
Can you explain the steps to reproduce the issue?
Where can I see the problem?

1. Login to the given test website - frontend.
2. Create new article -> 'Content Template'. You will see all template related to SU group
3. Search e.g. category: 'Images + Text templates'

You will get a blank dialog - no selection visible - selection field shows: '-- Category --'
