Change font size in Unity Editor

Editor

-

-

Please add a setting under Unity: Preferences to increase the font size for the text in the Unity Editor Panels and Tabs. Text recognition is more demanding cognitively than graphics so it would not only help visually impaired, but also tired 20 year olds with perfect vision! Thank you.

    Yeah, this is crazy. TAKE A LOOK AT BLENDER. They do this just fine. We can't use new laptops with Unity unless we buy low end displays. Absolutely stupid.

    As of 2018.2 the Unity editor supports Windows DPI Scaling which is per monitor, OS-level preference. This way you can scale up the font size and the whole Editor UI.

    In order to keep accuracy in the GameView you can leverage the "Low Resolution Aspect Ratios" option. https://docs.unity3d.com/2018.2/Documentation/Manual/GameView.html

    Instructions from Microsoft support page: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3025083/windows-scaling-issues-for-high-dpi-devices

    Windows 10

    Select Display > Change the size of text, apps, and other items, and then adjust the slider for each monitor.

    Earlier Windows systems

    Right-click the application, select Properties, select the Compatibility tab, and then select the Disable display scaling on high DPI settings check box.

    This is disgusting. For those of us PAYING for Unity every freaking month, this should have been something that we had LONG LONG AGO.

    A small relief for those using Unity on Linux:

    $ GDK_SCALE=2 ./Unity

    The editor is very hard to use with the text being so small. Is there any work around? There must be if they haven't fixed this yet. It's been over 7 years.

    I have given this 10 votes, because I want to use the software, but my eye-sight is really, really bad as it is already... Working on a 17" device doesn't help.

    As somebody with eyesight issues this is intolerable. I use unity for educational purposes at a University. Are you saying that blind people and their opinions don't count? This really needs to be fixed really soon. Another thing is that if you try to use a screen reader with the unity software in Windows 10 Unity crashes. It is a great product but it should be able to be used by all people. Not just the "sighted" population.

    As someone whose vision is slowly failing I am in desperate need of this I can barely read anything anymore...
