i tried that before, and it had no effect. i should have mentioned that. so... is this a bug?
EDIT: also, now that i'm looking at some other forms, i'm wondering why these selectors look so much different than the standard selectors?
below is the larger button test i re-did. but, i think the fact that jiggering with padding changes the position and "cropping" of the text, means something is happening somewhere. i'm afraid it's with how webflow "constructs" the element, which we have no control over. next to that is the standard iOS safari selector, which is obviously vastly different, and quite small (vertically) with no problems. at the least, how do i get that selector?
EDIT 2 - reread your comment; there is no top and bottom padding, either. and, trust me, i've gone through 20-30 tests of all of them, padding and margin, nothing fixed it. some got better, then going farther made things worse. i even got it to show nothing inside! something is clearly very wrong.
