[Ionic 4] ion-menu side="start" not working correctly in RTL mode?

#1

I’m trying to have the ion-menu slide in from the correct side in LTR and RTL.

Relevant code:

$app-direction: multi;
direction: rtl;

<ion-menu side="start">

But the menu always slide in from the left.

Am I doing something wrong or is there an issue with RTL support in Ionic 4?

Thanks for any help!

Apparently, if I’m using <html dir="rtl"> then the side=“start” is being respected, but using "direction: rtl" in the scss file causes the side=“start” to not be respected by the app.

However, it seems like there are MANY issues with RTL support… (for example, the Back button arrow doesn’t change directions, the Details arrow doesn’t change directions… I’m not complaining, but I wish I knew this before starting making the app in Ionic.)

For all RTL issues, please open Issues directly on the Github repo: https://github.com/ionic-team/ionic
