'Deploy a NuGet package' step doesn't accurately reflect setting for 'Purge this directory'

The collapsed step details aren't accurately reflected (as seen in attachment). Top section of image is the collapsed view, bottom is the expanded. The 'Purge this directory' checkbox is unchecked, but the collapsed text says the directory will be purged (not accurate...unless there's a second bug).

    Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for getting in touch,

    I've been able to reproduce this issue on Octopus version 2018.2.5, I'll create a Github issue for this and will update this thread so you're able to keep up to date with the progress.

    From the testing I've performed, this appears to be a visual bug only, a newly created project that has the Custom Installation Directory feature enabled will not purge the directory unless the option is specified.

    It appears to be possible to resolve this by toggling this option, saving between each selection in the interim.

    I greatly appreciate you bringing this to attention, I'm sorry for the confusion caused as a result.

    I'll get back to you ASAP with the Github issue :)

    Kind Regards,
