Button Auto-Resize Problem in FM12

I am trying to create identical buttons with different text.

 

For example, I want a row of 4 rectangular buttons that are 60 x 32 points in size. So I create the initial one and duplicate it for the other three. In FM12, if I change the text of the button, the button automatically resizes to the smallest size that fits the new text. This did not happen in FM11. With this new change in behavior, in FM12 my formerly aligned, identically sized buttons are now of different sizes and position. I have to manually enter their size and manually position the buttons so they are the right size and shape.

 

How do you turn off automatic button resizing when you change the text of a button? This is a significant bug when it comes to creating similarly sized buttons.
