    More's the pity.

    I am requesting both:

    1 fix for failure of the Select Orphans behaviour to accord with command name
    2 enhancement of Select Orphans to select all orphans (and no non-orphans).

    Thanks for the confirmation.

      The complete name of the command (as shown on the statusbar) is "Selects all orphan files on the left".

        I thought that was a description.

          Yes, it's a description, intended to resolve ambiguity in short menu captions. I suggest that you read the descriptions when you need to learn what a command is indended to do. We have noted your suggestion to expand the Select options. I'll also consider adding the word "files" to the caption, but I do not feel (like you do) that the current wording is an error in need of fixing.

            Select All
            Select All Files
            ...
            Select Orphans (doing Select Orphan Files)

            See the inconsistency?
