2529305 - "Add New" option is not working in Arabic Locale


When logged in as an Admin "Add New" option under the learning menu in LMS is not working for Arabic locale.

This is happening for all the menu options under the Learning tab.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to LMS as an Administrator and switch the locale to Arabic.
  2. Select the Learning tab and Select Item, Catalog or any of the other options.
  3. "Add New" button is visible but cannot be selected.



LMS admin interface does not support RTL (Right-to-Left) languages


This is an expected behavior of the application currently.

As of now, the LMS admin interface does not support RTL (Right-to-Left) languages. Labels might get loaded when you switch to Arabic but the screens are not complaint to RTL standards and hence we experience issues like the one here.

Update: As part of the Admin redesign scheduled for 2020 this will be addressed but only for those pages that are moved from Flex to HTML5.
