    I have over 500 categories on my WP. I have 10 main categories and the rest are children.
    Now I want to create a custom write panel for each parent category and have only children of selected category listed in category checklist.

    Is anyone can help?

    Might look at:
    User-Cats Manager
    Provides to admin users a way to select what categorie determined users can write. Administrators have access to all categories. Users are restricted to seeing posts only in their designated categories. Visitors must login to see posts.

    Can use these two plugins to restrict categories users can assign when writing posts, but the restrict does not carry forward to view the posts on the blog.

    category restriction:
    Category Access allows you to limit, by user, what categories the person sees when editing posts. This applies to just Authors, Contributore, and Subscribers--which makes sense. Can also control what categories are not displayed on the blog but within limits (will hide the_content and the_title, but not the_time,the_date, the_category) Can also restrict what categories guests (not logged in) see on blog.

    Bind-user-to-cat binds each user to a specified category. It works great. A user can post to only one category. When he goes into Manage, he sees all posts but can edit only the ones in his category. :) And everyone is able to view all posts

    Thank you Michael for your answer. Unfortunately I'm looking for another solution.
    Every user can post in each category. I just wanted to make it easier for them. If I do not find solution to limit number of shown categories I will leave it as it is.
    Maybe others know solution.

    I found this post yesterday looking for the same thing. Not finding anything I liked, I created a simple plugin that does just that. You can find it at the wordpress plugins directory http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/category-write-panels/
