This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is it possible to change a component category name in the Designer? If yes how?

Thanks

Workflow 7.1 SP2 ships with a Help Editor, which is where you can modify the component category. It's located at <install>/Designer/bin/WorkflowHelpEditor.exe.

When you open the Help Editor, choose File - Open select the .libconfig of the library in which the component resides (you can typically find this out by looking at the Settings tab of the component and looking at the namespace, it usually matches up)

Once the .libconfig is open, you can browse to your component, change the category, and hit Save. Reload Designer to see your changes.

How or where dio you change the category? I've opened the .libconfig file, but I cannot see anyplace to change or add a category?

if you right-click on Toolbox in the left hand side, you'll see an option to Add a category. Once added, you can drag components into the new category. Likewise, if you right-click on an existing category, you have the option to rename.
