We have a button bar that displays very differently in Browse Mode and Find Mode. In Find mode, several segments are hidden using "Hide Object when" calculations. That gives the remaining segments more room. However, the text behaves oddly.

Note, for eagle-eyed viewers, the font size in Find mode is larger than the font size in Browse mode. This is not a style issue. Another thread here suggested that the font size was the issue so I changed the font size to see if it was a cause. It was not. The buttons display the same behaviour.

 

Also, this layout theme is Classic, something that will change in due course.
