Layer Properties dialog --> Metadata --> Categories tab
The dialog allows you to add new categories but there's no way to remove unwanted categories.
I don't know if it should allow to remove predefined categories but at least the ones I created should be erasable.

- If it's a predefined one, it will come back to the left panel
- If it's not, it will be removed.

I don't understand, you can already do it. The left panel is only showing some default ones. These categories are not included in your metadata.
So you would like the red minus icon?

Yes I was expecting a minus button and as i did not find any, I never tried to add a new category because I was afraid i'd "corrupt" my data (this is not an area i use so no need to take a risk :) ).
I just give it a test now. I thought new category would be added to the left panel, growing the list and then stored in some custom setting for further reuse.
Hummm btw the behavior of this dialog is quite different from what QGIS often offers in this kind of configuration.
Anyway, i have no strong opinion on the design here. Feel free to ignore/close this issue report.
And Thanks for the explanation.
