When setting up promotions with SmartTarget 2014 SP1 I can get everything to work just fine if my content selection is based on a folder, but if I try to select components individually, the dropdown for selecting a Component Template is empty, both for a common Component Template, and also if I check the Select per Item checkbox. I have the same issue whether I create promotions on a master publication level (valid for all child publications) or on a local publication level.
Can anyone explain why this is happening, or how to get this working properly?
UPDATE: My Component Templates are 'dynamic' - Set to Published as a Dynamic Component with the Allow on Page Using Dynamic Assembly checkbox unchecked (these are standalone banners for SmartTarget only). I notice that when I check the checkbox, the CT appears in the list. Is this as intended? I would expect that it shouldn't matter if this box is checked.
