Dir="auto" in composer

Continuing the discussion from What does the support mixed text direction setting do?:

Should we deprecate this setting, composer button and add dir="auto" by default in our text areas? IE is not a blocker anymore.


This setting also affects non-textarea things. e.g. it is used to apply dir= to paragraphs/quotes in posts:

And topic titles:

and more.

Can we use dir="auto" for all these things now? :crossed_fingers:

Makes sense, users need this everywhere they input text:

  • Composer textarea
  • Composer preview
  • Topic titles in topics
  • Topic titles in lists
  • Posts in topics
  • Bio in usercard / profile
  • Topic “previews” in topics lists
