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.

    All 10 votes in. New user, would like to use Unity but can't with micro-font. Win 10 scaling is not an answer.

    Blender font scaling works great. All other 3D softwares have font scaling. Maybe 4K screens are just a fad, that is, until 8K screens come along.

    I am a paying customer and this is an infuriating issue for me. My text renders tiny on my 4K monitor. Even if you have to release it as an experimental feature buried in a config file or an environment variable. Any support would be greatly appreciated.

    The UI is unusable at this font/widget size.

    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 :(
