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.

    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!

    Wow, I can't believe Unity is still using fonts with no anti-aliasing. I can practically count the number of pixels each character is comprised of. Help us out here, Unity team! It's 2016! This problem has been going on for 5.5 years now! Look at the date of the original post!

    Pretty crazy that the interface font size can't be changed. I hope you guys are working on this.

    I was just told at my school that I no longer need glasses but I'm afraid she was wrong. Unity please please please please please please please please add the ability to change the font-size. It would really help and would be really good to the game I'm designing.

    PLEASE add this feature. I can't use unity on my notebook because the font is too small.
