Thanks for reaching out to us about this issue. But something is not clear. You said, ‘New categories and tags do not mark as being used’. How do you mean? Can you please explain better?
Hi, I mean that when a new category has been created, it will be selected after the creation. That the deafult situation.
In the current situation the typed-in category seems to do nothing at the time of creation, it is not even in the list. Just after a reload of the post page (in the editor) the new cat appears in the list, but not selected.
After disabling Yoast, everything works as it should. The same happens with tags.
Thanks for the explanation.
With Yoast SEO 16.1.1, WordPress 5.7 and Classic Editor 1.6, I am unable to reproduce this. Creating a new category, it shows up in the list and I am to select it.

@peterluit Thank for your reply and please let us once you’ve had a chance to perform the conflict check.
@peterluit Have you have an opportunity to performing your testing?
Thanks for you reply, until now I can only ‘switch off’ the problem if I disable Yoast. I will just check of any cash issue, may keep the problem active.
Since we were unable to reproduce the issue with a default set-up, we recommend you perform a conflict check to rule out the possibility of a plugin or theme conflict — https://yoast.com/help/how-to-check-for-plugin-conflicts/
With a default WordPress theme (e.g. TwentyTwenty), WordPress 5.7.1, and only Yoast SEO for WordPress 16.1.1 and Classic Editor 1.6 as the only plugins enabled, are you able to reproduce the issue?
We ask as we were unable to reproduce it from our end. Could you please test this in the troubleshooting mode of the health check plugin to ensure that the issue can be reliably reproduced and with what set-up — https://yoast.com/help/how-to-check-for-plugin-conflicts/
We are going ahead and marking this issue as resolved due to inactivity. If you require any further assistance please create a new issue.
