Can't change the category of a document using the Front-end editor

Our site is setup so that normal users edit documents from the front-end. We've found that when they try to change the category from the front-end there is only one category available. Changing the same document in the admin section shows all the available categories. I've attached a screnshot of this, on the left is the admin section, on the right is the same document in the front-end.

Is there a setting I need to change to allow front-end category changes?

Hello Elliott,

This is correct behavior, on the frontend you only see the categories that are part of the menu item you are in. You have probbaly created a menu item and linked it to a specific category? The categories you see are sub categories of the category you selected for the menu item.

Does that help you?
