Magnifier search icon in main search bar should not be mirrored in RTL languages
Closed, ResolvedPublic


While working on releasing the Growth Experiments to Arabic wiki, the Growth team noticed how the magnifier search icon of the main desktop search bar in the chrome area of the screen is mirrored in RTL languages T227154.

According to OOUI and to this comment T227154#5304657 by @Volker_E that should not happen.
The icon should correctly be rendered with the handle pointing bottom right in RTL.

The alignment seems right(!) to me, as the icon is a search button trigger in Vector, while in OOUI it's an indication icon.
