Um... pardon my ignorance; I cannot read Arabic or any right-to-left

script, but... why should it be flipped? It is pointing *down*, not

right or left.

This last pic doesnt make anything clear.
Are you saying that the drop down Arrow
must be on the Right and NOT the Left?
If so, I do not think that is possible.

I think hes talking of the styling, the box doesn't flow as it should do.

Can you please compare between two following pics and detect the difference:









If you can't see any difference, then focus on the button of drop-down list arrow.

This button must flipped (button only) in right to left locals to display as the second pic (manipulated by GIMP).

No, he's saying that the box around the arrow should be mirrored, which
is exactly what the last picture shows. In the left image, the arrow
connects to a non-existant text field to the left of the arrow. It should
connect to the existing text field to the right of the arrow.

Ah. So what you are trying to say is not that the arrow is or needs to
be flipped, but that the graphical box surrounding it needs to be
flipped so that it joins up with the border of the list box?

The image used to represent the arrow has a frame that is contoured to
match the juxtaposed combobox. This frame has square corners where it
meets the combobox and rounded corners on the outside edge. In RTL
locates, since the image appears on the left of the combobox instead
of the right, the rounded and squared edges should be reversed.

Personally, I'd file it against unity and have it reassigned by
somebody who knows which component is responsible for that.

I fail to see the problem. The drop down arrow points down which is the
direction that 'drop DOWN' is supposed to point.
Left-to-right or right-to-left makes no difference to up/down.

If I am missing something here I'd love to hear about it.
