Hello,

I'm documenting some software, and want to describe what the "ellipse" [...]
button does. (As is true of most "ellipse" buttons -- or buttons containing
ellipses like [Setup...] -- clicking it gets you "more info" or "more
options" or whatever.)

But what do you call the button itself?

The "See more" button? A colleague suggested "Navigation" button, but that's
not very satisfying.

Of course I'm putting the button image into the doc, but was just wondering
how to say it in words.
