I have a problem similar to this one. I used the first 6 "Extra Text Fields". Then I created a few more fields from the "Add new text type" . A few were drop down and some were text types. This was done on a top level category and I checked the box at the bottom that said "*Check box to apply these settings and permissions to all children:". At first only the 6 text fields are inheriting, not the additional ones I created. Then I created a second subcategory (from the main category) and none are inheriting. What should I be looking for?
