Textsize of label of copied btn changes

I found that when I created a button, the textsize property had not been set, even though the IDE showed it to be 13. I then went to the IDE to click the size up to `4, then back down to 13 and then, when I did:
put the texsize of btn “mybutton”, it showed the textsize correctly.

It’s just one of those frustrating mysteries one encounters. The copied btn textsize was probably picking up the textsize from the fields that I had already imported.

I’d have to call it a bug, I guess??
