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.

    A great dev tool badly let down by an appalling accessibility feature. I have to use the Windows Magnifier on a 27" monitor regularly just to read the text, an extremely inconvenient and disruptive waste of my time. This is a huge negative for me with regard to using Unity. Changing the screen resolution is not an answer worth considering, as it would cramp my workspace to an unacceptable level. Please, please give this a reasonable priority. Not everyone has bionic vision.

    Yup. Confirmed a 29" 21:9 ratio 2560x1080 is also unreadable.

    Sadness. A simple "Increase overall Font Size" would do for now... ;)

    I agree, it would be nice to increase the font. I am running Unity on Windows and it is unbearably small. It prohibits me from working too long with it. Any consideration to an editor font increase option would be greatly appreciated.

    With a 4k monitor I have to move it uncomfortably close, it's really hard to believe this isn't supported already. I have a 40 inch monitor too! I really feel bad for anyone with a 4k monitor that's any smaller it would be totally unusable.

    Obviously you all know how important this is to everyone. I have a free license so I have no right to demand anything (other than that I am a customer on your asset store and that I advocate for the use of your software when it's applicable in a professional setting. I think that this is unfair to people who have poor vision, but it also punishes people for having high pixel displays. It also hinders people making videos because the text will be too small to follow along in a tutorial, many which are done on large macs. We all know it is on your roadmap, but the sooner the better.

    Please provide font settings in Unity. As we can change inspector settings from Editor folder, you can provide font feature in Editor or in Preferences.
    Thanks!

    4K here, and the text is so small and thin, I need to be 10cm from the screen to even READ it 0.0
    We have the required votes now :)

    Let me add my urgent request for this too! Frankly, it's embarrassing for me to show my work to my friends and coworkers. Their first response when seeing Unity on my high-res display is, "WTF, what kind of amateurish app is this that you're using?"

    Just started with Unity. What a great tool this is.

    But man, couple hours in and my eyes are screaming for mercy. And I'm on a rather pedestrian 2560x1440 27-inch display. I imagine Unity editor is completely unusable on 4K or other high DPI displays.

    It's surprising to see this in 2015, really.

    This really need attention especially with the super hi-res monitors starting to become more popular. Though even on a normal resolution screen using Unity is serious eyestrainovision.
