In ArcGIS 10 ESRI has changed the language of the items contained within the select by location spatial selections drop down. It is hard for me to read because it is so verbose. As seen in the image below.


In the older versions of Arc GIS the drop down was much easier to read. For example: intersect, are within a distance of, completely contain, are completely within, have their center in... etc.

Is there a way to get this simpler wording back? If this question is not clear, please ask for clarification thanks
