If youâre writing across platforms, Iâd stick with âEllipsisâ. Itâs more commonly understood, and âMoreâ can also refer to the selection menu you get on a right-click of the mouse. This will probably change as interfaces evolve, but for now, the former is a safe choice. If your stuff is translated, you might check with your translation agency to see whatâs universally understood.
