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.

    Shame on you devs, if you can't even fulfill this simple request after 5 years. It's really horrible to use such a small sized fonts. Thinking of shifting to some other gaming engine....

    It's not only the size. From what I can see and my programming experience, Unity uses libfreetype to render editor UI text. And for some reason they turned on FULL hinting. It looks atrocious, when you use libfreetype, always add option to change hinting amount or at least set it to slight as Ubuntu does by default. Funny fact: Ubuntu's DE is called Unity but doesn't make this childish mistake with UI.

    Just bought 27 inch 1920x1080 Display to make Unity more usable. Games, 3d view and some other things look pixalated, but Unity left no choice :(

    Over 2,000 votes and still no bother to do this? I understand there's a lot of features to work on and core elements to make progress on, but c'mon.

    Brand new to Unity, evaluating between Unity and Unreal Engine. One look at the Unity interface makes me go "Hell no!" I am not going to live with that for many hours a day.

    All the text in the interface is blurry and hard to read on my vanilla 1080p. screen.http://www.planetinaction.com/download/Unity_blurry.png

    Agree. The font size being fixed is very poor for usability.

    It's a little straining having to lean into the screen all the time. I tried using Windows display scaling but that's just blurry and horrible. I have a 2560 x 1440 screen and I also need this feature!
