VisualEditor: Default insert type for RTL wikis should be thumb|left not thumb|right
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

An Arabic editor has reported that he/she is having difficulty with getting images to display left-justified (as they should be in RTL wikis). How does VE handle justification of elements in RTL? Can images be defaulted to left justify?
This issue might apply to other elements, such as infobox templates.

Andre, here's a test case:

*Go to ar.wikipedia, a RTL wiki

*Enable VE in pref.

*Go to your userpage or sandbox (Google Translate is calling these "Stadiums"!)

*Use media icon to bring up dialog, pick image.

*Image defaults to the right. Attempts to click'n'drag it to the left do not work.

*Curse the LTR imperialists.

Duplicated on both latest Chrome and Firefox, OS 10.6.8.

Same thing as bug 51851, and that one has more discussion despite being reported later.
