#40932 new defect (bug)

Word breaks the layout

Focuses: ui, administration Cc:


Could we change the string Add in a symbol, like in the link flyout menu? Because the german word Hinzufügen for this string is too long and this breaks the layout in WordPress 4.8. The string appears in two places with different meaning, maybe a plus or enter sign is enough.

Attached an initial patch to bring this forward hopefully. On the screenshot you see the plus sign not centered and then centered via changing CSS from

left: -2px;


left: -1px;

in customize-controls.css, L.1461:

#available-menu-items .new-content-item .add-content:before

Please someone take over to polish things like they should..

I agree the space for this is limited to displaying 'add'. Not only in German, but probably in some other languages too, it will break the UI. To keep the look consistent, I'd suggest using the same layout as used on inserting links, so this would be a blue button with the return symbol.
