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.

    Upcoming Unity 6.x cycle is great opportunity to add font scaling and anti-aliasing. Please consider adding this feature, and save eyes of thousands of developers.

    28'' UHD monitor and the Unity Editor is absolutly unusable on it. Monodevelop scales perfectly on Linux. But the Editor can't be used with this display.

    Guys, does it really a big deal? Seriously, many applications allowed change font size and face. If you are afraid of the implementation of it, just pick up some good monoscape fonts and allow to change only for one of them.
    If a developer is a retard, and set the size to very big, than it will be his problem.

    Iam Disappointed Unity Team , this issue has created problem working due to small fonts since unity 4.6 after i upgrade to new laptop with 1080p resolution and if i dont use High DPI the Whole editor UI is blurr very disappointed this long for such a minor feature that is too important for users of this Engine. Its 2017 now how many more years to add this feature ???

    I use Unity on a 4K Screen and the small Font Size is unreadable.
    So please go with the time und use a more flexible System for the Editor Fonts.

    Of all the bugs and quirks Unity has, this one is the most serious. It prevents me from using the software for any extended period of time.

    It is virtually impossible to see periods, commas, and hyphens in the editor.

    I understand you use the program "as is". But 2300 votes, 11 pages of comments, and being completely reproducible. Why is it only being considered?

    Suggestions for the developers:
    1. Allow inspector fonts to be setup with user fonts and sizes.
    2. Include a lock feature to ensure zoom is not triggered accidentally. So the font sizes don't change while you are trying to edit the inspector values.
    3. Include a zoom feature in the inspector window.

    Inspector is the most important, project, hierarchy, mecanim windows should be considered as well.

    Makes me sad that software devs like Unity ignore basic usability like this. For what it's worth, ADA laws require consideration of users, but private firms can ignore the rules if they don't take government funding. Yes the majority doesn't need it, but many (MANY as can be seen here) people do need help, young and old eyes alike. Please help us out, Unity!
