Description

This spawns from my comment on the admin ui thread: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/18197#comment:143

Now that we've moved the Help/Screen Options menus back out of the admin bar, it seems non-intuitive that you open the Help menu on the right side, then have to move your mouse all the way across to switch between the sub-tabs (Navigation, Layout, Content, etc.).

Shouldn't the sub-navigation and "For more information" be flipped now that the Help button is no longer directly above where said sub-tabs now reside?

I don't know, seems weird. Especially since there's also a sidebar in play.

I get that it requires some mouse movement, but chances are, you'll be reading the first tab first anyway.

Replying to nacin:

Wasn't there a mockup somewhere with horizontal tabs in this menu at one point?

Frankly, I rarely even look in the Help menu myself, but it seems odd that the menu link would all the way on one side and the sub-nav all the way on the other. I don't know what the solution is, maybe we should just leave it and see if anybody complains.

Closing as wontfix. Nav on left, main content in middle, more info to right is a standard in the UI.
