How to make exactly equal size buttons?

Permalink Browser Info Environment
I'm trying to make several exactly equal size buttons with a dropdown. Now all my buttons have different length due to different button texts and they look awful. How can I make several equal size buttons with a dropdown?

Hello,

The only way I can think of (other that making every word the same length) would be to add the same class to each button (you can do that when adding the button to the page, it's in the first tab at the bottom of the setting screen) and then to add styling to your site's css sheet for that class to set the width you want.

Another option wold be to use the button bar block instead. That wouldn't change the fact that each button would have a different width, but you might find it more aesthetically pleasing.

If you have problems implementing one or the other of these 2 options, please let me know and I'll be glad to help.
