Misprint in Sampling Audio chapter 5, I believe: flattened comp renamed, "Splice: Comp B," not "Splice: Comp A."

Here's a screenshot from Page 278 of the book, below.  You can see in the menu that "B - Comp B" is checked, and is the current comp, but the text at the bottom says the Flatten operation will change the names of all regions to "Splice: Comp A."   For me it was, after the Flatten, indeed,  "Splice: Comp B:" and I suppose that's what supposed to happen, making "Splice: Comp A" a misprint.

Indeed the text in the description does not match the screenshot, which isn't ideal. 

Normally, you should only see Comp A in that menu, however depending on what you're doing during the exercice you may create a Comp B. For example if you start comping, then Option-click a take to select the entire take, then continue comping, that creates a new comp (Comp B). This allows you to return to Comp A which was the state of the comp just before you Option-clicked a take. 

In any case, you are right: whichever comp is selected in the take folder pop-up menu is the name that you will see on the resulting regions after you flatten.
