Fixed size label text on Button object

Fixed size label text on Button object

In the native Button object the text size adjusts with the size of the window and the length of the text. This gives us three problems:

  1. With several buttons it is almost impossible to make it look consistent when the text sizes vary a lot.
  2. On smaller screens you end up with so small text that is becomes unreadable. 
  3. Behaviour is not consistent with the rest of the client and other objects.

Add an option to fix the text size, e.g. 14 px. If the text does not fit with inside the button then use ellipsis text overflow ( Xyz... ).

This would really improve design possibilities!

The button is also difficult to design with css. Would be a nice improvement.

Some time ago I logged a similar request, and got the standard reply that this was not a priority feature. Maybe we can get more attention this time...

So either a fixed point font size, or at least a dropdown to allows selection from a range of relative size (Tiny, Small, Normal, Large,...)

The same goes for the other properties of the button object. It's nearly impossible to create two identical looking buttons now.

The user's request is to be able to use line feed codes in the button text input.
