Change inclusions wording from 'Recurse subfolders' to 'Include subfolders'

Recommended Posts

It seems strange to me that CC developers use a word that most people will have no idea of the meaning (as seems to be backed up by some posts I've been reading), why not just use 'Include' then they will understand exactly the purpose of that option. Then they won't be posting here asking how to delete all folders in a folder they've included for cleaning cos it'll be clear when they add it in the first place.

+1 ... recurse is technically correct ... but everyone understands what 'include' means and it's also the term used by most other software.

JDPower,

 

A lot of folks are simply too lazy to read the online manual. The manual of CC v2.29 offered (past tense !!!) an explaination of what ""recurse"" meant.

Why should a user have to resort to looking in a user manual when there's a far more widely used and understood expression available? It's much easier to change that one word.

The wording has been amended in the current release anyway so no longer and issue.
