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.

    This is not one of those things that will blow over, higher res screens are here to stay and you guys need to understand that and let us change font sizes, when the new unity UI drops and this is not part of it that would be VERY disappointing, this issue is almost as old as unity itself omg.

    Added 9 votes. As I am getting older now, being able to adjust font-sizes is a must-have.

    Six years last this proposal in this topic, and I am one more developer who really needs this function being implemented. My 10 votes can here so I would not like getting blind with my 4k screen, and I need it to boost my performance by working faster.

    It is pretty crazy that a product as mature as Unity whose main purpose is a programming tool doesn't have the ability to change the font size. Game developers spend hours and hours in tools like unity, and the fatigue factor caused by tiny text has to be incredibly high. On high res monitors, it is nearly unreadable. If you use Windows scaling it makes everything huge and unwieldy. People have been begging for this feature for years. Come on devs, take some time to impove the readability of your tool. Show some love to your customers and maybe you'll get more of them.

    I have a Mac with a 4K screen, and Unity is completely unusable. I can't read the text since it's so tiny :(

    ALL MY 10 VOTES GO HERE!! Unity team, this is beyond stupid. So much so that I have no words.
    FIX THIS! And if it really screws with the Interface base code from 10 years ago, then hard-code it for heaven sakes -- just a point size larger (like from 6 to 7 LOL) would help, dumbnuts.

    Given my 10 votes. I'm a Mac user and this is a must have UI feature. It's incredible it has not been addressed yet.

    I tried the DPI scaling and it was atrocious, the rest of windows and even unity was just too huge and ugly and I had no space to work with. The fonts in Unity were indeed much more readable, but it was not realistically usable in that state.

    I mainly only need it in the inspector, myself.
