Button property improvements (define font size, supplement sliders with input fields, ...)

It's annoying to have several buttons side to side with different font sizes. It would save a lot of hassle if the automatic scaling could be disabled, and instead choose from a list of predetermined font sizes.

Regarding the other properties that can be set on the button, many of them have sliders with no 'snapping' or visual indication of the chosen value. This makes it nearly impossible to create buttons with the same properties, or doing changes afterwards. My suggestion would be to provide an input field for these values as well.

Examples: Font size, Corner radius, Border Width...


Thank you for your feedback on ways to improve our product. While this is something we understand would be useful, it's not on the short-term roadmap. Please continue to show your support for this idea.

The responsive font size is dependent on the text length, so the way to get the same size is not to set the slider in the same position for all button. It is to move the slider so that labels has the same size, which can be a different slider position per button. That said a fixed, non responsive size could be considered.

Hi Patric,

The sliders are not a great solution, as they only allow for making the size more or less the same size. It makes me feel like I'm investing my time and energy in things that should just work.

Either option would make me happy:

- Allow responsive sizing based on control height

- Ability to set fixed font size/relative font size from presets (tiny-normal-big-very big) which are relative to the standard font size.

you can also add an indication like this, maybe it's easier to implement 🙂
