Keyboard navigation does not mirror in RTL setting

Keyboard navigation does not mirror in RTL setting (using German physical keyboard):

The cursor movement in RTL UI is tricky. Some apps treat the right arrow as going forward but that means moving left. I’ll have a look.

In the grid view of Finder, the left arrow key moves the selection left, the right arrow key moves the selection to the right. Other examples are the photos grid in Photos, events in Calendar, the grid view in Notes, and the “Contact Sheet” view in Preview (⌥⌘6).

Thanks for checking this. I’ll fix it.

Fixed. How did you get to test the Arabic localization?

The first second in the movie above shows the Arabic locale selected in system preferences. I rebooted the Mac after chaining the locale so that the window chrome mirrors correctly. (Logout and login should work, too, but System Preferences advices to reboot, so I do that when switching to Arabic.)

I didn’t mean how you set your mac to Arabic but why? :wink:
