# Best practices for clear field control in field with right-justified text?

A form we've created has $amounts right justified. What's best practice for including a "clear field" control within the field? Current thinking is that the hover state pushes the$ amount to the left, revealing an "X" control.

Another option is to put the "X" on the left, which would have the benefit of not making the \$ amount jump left every time you hover.

Thoughts?

• Not a solution, but an anecdote: I know of one program (Clementine music player) that uses a left-aligned "clear field" function, and I always feel the field (rather, the icon) looks strange. It took me a while until I tried it. – virtualnobi Feb 22 '17 at 17:42
• That's our thinking as well. It would seem strange. – David Riedy Feb 22 '17 at 18:54
