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 a must have. I'm afraid of what happens when I move to a 5k iMac.

    Very hard to use Unity with a 27", 2560 x 1440 iMac, forcing me to purchase a lower resolution monitor just for the editor.

    Kindly add this basic feature to the editor.

    28" Monitor with 4k resolution... the font measures 1mm. That's no joke, I measured it.

    Any scaling of Windows results in a blurry font. So please fix either the blurriness of Windows-scaling or add a font size option. 4k is adapted fast by developers as you get a lot of space and can preview FullHD easily... but no one will use a Tool where your eyes bleed after staring at 1mm fonts.

    It seems I cannot vote, but at least I can comment: this is A MUST with new displays with high density displays.

    Please add an option to set font sizes. I have to use an additional monitor with lower resolution for Inspector and other editor views, fonts on iMac 27" are very small from normal viewing distance.

    Not just a nicety but becoming vital for some of us developers. It may be a deciding factor in changing to another dev enigine (if any support it already).

    How in gods name is this feature not implemented already? Not being able to change the font size is just archaic.

    Seriously, at LEAST use the default windows font settings.

    absolute must have! If only as a unsupported hack editable in registry or something.

    I think what is really being asked for is support for different DPI's, possibly settable in the UI. Blender does this, allowing you to specify up to 144dpi. I have a Yoga 2 Pro, which has 200dpi+, and the UI looks blurry and scaled. I'd love to be able to run it with a reasonable font size with perfect sharpness.
