      Description

      When in the process of Moving Files

      [which I think relates to here:]

      http://www.whatever/moodle/files/index.php

      Some of our tutors have been confused by the following instruction (which is obviously part of the interface)

      2 files selected for moving. Now go to the destination and press 'Move files to here'

      MY SUGGESTION TO CLARIFY THIS SENTENCE IS:

      CHANGE the word 'in' to 'into', and ADD 'folder'.

      Thus, it would become (in English):

      ...Now go into the destination folder and press...

      REASON FOR SUGGESTED CHANGE:

      We had tutors that go into a loop because instead of clicking the blue link INTO their destination folder. They were either trying to drop the files on top of the folder name (!?) or clicking the box next to the name of the folder they wanted to put their files into. They didn't realise they needed to click that name in order to GO INTO the folder. So I just wanted to make the language of the instruction a little clearer to help avoid confusion.

      These are interface issues that probably involve the language packs. We have tried to track this text string down and make the change for our own system. But I think we ran out of time before locating it. Any hints greatfully received.

      Many thanks
