menuToggle not working on android or windows devices when left aligned


Hello i’ve been creating my first app in ionic 2 and have my header

		<ion-buttons left>
			<button ion-button menuToggle>
				<ion-icon name="menu"></ion-icon>
			Hello world

The left attribute on the ion-buttons stops the menuToggle being triggered on android i have tried using start like it says in the docs but then the button does not get aligned the way i would like it to on android devices. I thought something may be overlapping the button but seems to detect the button as normal i have no experience using the order css attribute that is set to align the elements. Although it is simple enough to see what it is doing.
