  1. Go to Appearance > Editor > Styles(top right corner) > Typography > Buttons
  2. Change the values(ie. S, M, L, XL, XXL) from Size Preset
  3. Check the "Get in Touch" button from the left side preview. That's not affected by the size changes.

Here is the video as well:

Thank you!

Hi Abid!
Thank you for the report and the video.

Like you mentioned and illustrated in the video, the settings in the Styles sidebar in the Site Editor are defaults: If you add a new button, the updated font size will be used correctly.

If a button already has a font size set in the block settings sidebar or in a template or pattern, then that size is used instead of the default.

In Twenty Twenty-Three, the designer has chosen to use the small font size.
The font size is part of the markup:

<div class="wp-block-button has-custom-font-size has-small-font-size">
<a class="wp-block-button__link wp-element-button">Get In Touch</a></div>

To change the size, the individual block can be selected and the size changed in the block settings.
-This works the same for all block themes, and it is not limited to the font size setting.
Therefor, this is not a bug.

It would be great if we could come up with a better way to communicate this to users so that editing is less confusing.

If we want to remove the small font size from the button in Twenty Twenty-Three, then we need to remove the font size in this block pattern: call-to-action.php line 21 and 22

The Button block with the Small text option was added to the "Call to action" pattern in PR 61.

The difference between the Small and Medium text sizes is not much, though I am not convinced that the pattern should change. When using the CTA pattern, the Button block still needs at least the link reference to be useful, and the styles can be changed for that block (or else the "Buttons" block could be deleted and replaced with a new block that has default/global styling).

I have some interface concerns that make editing the styles less pleasant, but those are not related directly to the theme.

  • I needed to open the Typography options and choose "Reset All" to remove the font size from the pattern's block. Clicking the S did not undo the selection, which I expected because clicking a color selection removes the special color choice.
  • If I want to update the styles for a block within the pattern, I did not find an indication in the blog home template that the section was the CTA pattern (and that I would need to edit the pattern to affect any other place I might add it).
