Ambiguous Confirm Screen
« on: June 10, 2013, 10:18:22 am »

Perhaps its just me but I get confused when I get the warning message shown in the screen capture when I attempt to quit MC and something is running in the background.

If I want to force quit, I have to answer 'Yes' but the question leads me to say 'No' in normal English because most other software houses use a similar phrase to mean 'continue running", not 'continue stopping'.

Could you change the word 'continue' to 'stop' or 'quit'? Or even 'continue stopping'?

One for the style list perhaps.

Thanks for getting the big fish fried first.  ;)

Good idea, I changed "continue" to "exit the program" in cases where the "action" referred to is closing the program.
