    This issue is happening for more than 1 type of widgets. I know it happens to the DatePicker as well.

    If the input element used for the numeric textbox has a placeholder attribute, the placeholder text appears indented too far to the right in Microsoft Edge browser. It can be reproduced by adding it using developer tools even on the Kendo UI demo examples by clearing the text inside and giving it the placeholder text.

    See the attached screenshot.

    Hello Dmitry,

    The described issue is caused by the default browser behavior beyond our control, but you can configure the desired offset via the following CSS:

    .k-edge .k-widget .k-input {
      text-indent: 1px;

    I hope this helps.
