Dropdown menu order problem

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just noticed something weird and not consistent between inside the same application or any other software and is the alignment of the dropdown menu and sub menu.

1- For example, the dropdown menu it seems to be aligned to the right of the menu and it should be to the left:



2- Gets worse when opening sub menu which some open to the left although the arrow points to the right:


In conclusion all the menu should be aligned to the left like any other software (maybe is not standard but is a best practice) and always the sub menu should open where the small arrow is (to the right)

Quick mockup:

Hey Juan,

Do you have a tablet connected? If so, this is likely caused by a Windows tablet setting called Handedness

To fix:

Press the Windows key + R and then paste in the following explorer shell:::{80F3F1D5-FECA-45F3-BC32-752C152E456E} and then press OK. You can then try changing the Handedness from right to left.
