Size of "Scale" columns... as opposed to buttons?

Hey all.

I’ve gotten into trying to use scale buttons in place of buttons for things like marking an item complete in a to-do list. I just really dislike the look of buttons and find that scales set to limit of 1 look much better ( though with less icon choices… sadface ) than buttons do and are less distracting that way.

Anyone know if this will cause problems down the line for me? I noticed one of my docs seems to be going a little bit slower than usual, but I can’t figure out if thats the cause of it.
