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.

    Working with the Unity editor becomes very tiring after a while due to the tiny font size. This fix is badly needed.

    This is more important to me than any other improvement I would like to see in Unity. It affects my ability, speed, and comfort at doing work in Unity every single second I'm doing work, which is pretty huge. I hate that my text is too small to easily read on my desktop machine and I have to lean forward close to my screen a lot or I can't do it. My desktop is BETTER than my notebook for every other task, it's crazy that my notebook lets me read text in and generally work with the Unity editor more easily than my more powerful, higher resolution desktop machine! Please delay some other tasks and make this your company's top priority for just long enough to GET IT DONE. Thank you!

    This should have been implemented years ago. I love Unity but it's pretty embarrassing.

    I'd like to second this. On my setup the editor main window is readable, but the Console isn't. How hard can it be to use a mono-spaced font and/or to allow the user to set a font size?

    4k Screen -> it's impossible to read the UI-text in unity. Every console output is a pain.

    I used to think of this as an annoyance, but my displays over the years keep increasing their DPI making the text smaller and smaller. Also recently I had eye allergy problems and it made working very difficult. I appreciate larger fonts sizes now. (Maybe I'm getting old. >.< ) This gets a vote. Thank you Unity team I love being a Unity developer.

    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 :(
