Why is the icon placed on the right side of the button in some designs and on the left side in other cases?


1 Answer 1


The icon should always be displayed before the text for a better association between the icon and the label and this also depends on the direction of your text.

  • RTL (right to left) -> icon on the right
  • LTR (left to right) -> icon on the left

Interesting use case of the drop-down menu arrow, I advise you to put it at the end of the label.
