Do you use preset buttons for bet sizes or type in your own number?

When making bets before or after the flop online, do you use preset buttons, customized buttons or enter your own number? Do you treat a bet differently if someone obviously took the time to enter it compared to clicking a button?

Sometimes I do it.
These buttons are a good tool anyway.

Yea, sure it helps. But sometimes it's useful to bet 1/2

Preset buttons are a good thing and I use them, but I often have to push the slider to play the stakes I want.

I don't use the button for sizes in bets other than minimum, 1/2, or pot. Because the longer you think about the size, the fewer mistakes there will be in the hands. And other players will think your hand is better than it really is.

I mostly just use my personally generated pre-set betting scales. It makes life much easier and faster.

Almost always I use my customized buttons postflop , I use 33% , 48% , 66% , Pot , sometimes I change those numbers based on the circumstance!

Pre flop I keep things simple as for the pre flop open raise sizes , I open 2.5x-3x when the stacks are super deep 100+bbs and after that I don't bother much with the 2.1x or 2.2x I min raise the unopened flop.

In cash games I open raise everything 2.5x and post flop I have almost the same bets and sometimes some overbets.

the truth so far I could not get used to the buttons I know they would be easy dough because I would not have to be looking for many things and I would do it quickly and have more time to make a decision

I use buttons customized by myself but that doesn't mean I don't use a different bet size in a particular situation

I recently set my own percents and I really like it. The presets just dont match to the way I like to bet. I seem to save a few blinds in the long run.

Most of time I use the preset buttons. The difference is I customize the bet percentages so that I get an idea of what I like to bet.

A few times I like to type in the bet just because I prefer the bet more rounder than an odd number.

Most of the time I'm following standard bet sizing if I'm RFI betting post-flop. The only time I manually enter a number is when I'm 3 or 4 betting, taking into account the amount of the villain's bet and how many others are currently in the pot.

I use preset buttons because its easier. I believe that sizes don’t hace to be precise at a cent level, just the order of magnitude. I can easily have a 70% size for big bets, 50% for medium bets and 35% for small bets.
I think that if you take your time to bet, it gives the impression that you are thinking more about the hand, and a bet seems more “risk calculated” if you take yout time, as opposed to bet quickly in 5 seconds with the preset button. What do you guys think about this?

I use preset buttons to find out 25% of pot for example but then manually trim my bet to exact value I want to bet. That way I don't misclick my bet too big/low by accident.

it just depends, sometimes i'll use the presets but sometimes to represent strength i'll use a mixture of more random numbers

Most often I use preset buttons. Very rarely I enter the value myself.

I pre-configure my bet sizes on the buttons, as for the fact that someone spent time entering the bet manually, I respect this.

I use personalized bet sizes on the desktop App. Unfortunately, pokerstars mobile application doesn't allow to configure personalized button for bet sizes :/
