I would move the pencil icon next to the X or delete icon. I would also try to use the word Edit and use a different color.

Lets look at this way. Arrow certainly indicates a sub-nav, but few things need to considered - 1) If your navigation has some other items that do not have a sub-navigation, then it might make good sense to add that arrow to differentiate it from other nav categories. A good example could be Amazon (check screenshot) - See how the "Shop by Category" nav ...

I don't agree with the others about the edit and the delete needing to be closer. The edit,as I understood, is for the attachment name only. The delete is for the entire attachment. There is no option to edit the entire attachment. So - the delete action refer to the entire item and it shouldn't look like the item's name edit action. I suggest merely making ...

As a compromise, I suggest you put a visual sign: one arrow for a start (and only one) in a distinguished place, like next to the home button. That indicates that all the next buttons are dropdown menus. I said arrow for a start, but it doesn't have to be an arrow.

Right now your buttons are all over the place; one left, middle, right. By moving the edit next to delete you create sort of a modification bar. I'd also make the view/detail button ...

Users can misinterpret the minus icon because it often represents removal or deletion. Users shouldn’t feel like they are losing menu options when they collapse the menu. The X icon represents collapsing better because ...

Yes, you need arrows. All touchscreen devices cannot hover, so you must include information about the nature of a menu item, as it cannot be discerned or discovered by hovering. Some might argue you could/should detect if it's a touch device and then add the arrows. No. Because: A user might have their touch device set to spoof as desktop browser A user ...

It used to be that arrows were preferred as they provided a visual cue to users there was more to the menu if they clicked on / hovered over them. Over time web developers started making these menus activate on both a click and hover, in which case the arrows aren't necessary as users by default will click or tap on a menu item. If doing so then reveals a ...
