Make all buttons the same size. That is, extend width for STATUS 2 and ERROR buttons so it is the same as width of the LONG STATUS button. And center align the text in buttons.

  • What if we have a really long status and the rest of statuses are small in terms of text? User would totally lose focus while scanning such a list where the tiny status is center aligned in a large pill. I'd prefer left aligned view because the content can be easily scanned in such a view – Sheraz May 8 at 10:12
  • @Sheraz Really long status is a bad design. It has to be easy to grasp in a matter of split second and hence must be reasonably small. – Valera Grishin May 8 at 11:52
