Photoshop: Support scalable user interface UI for high resolution monitors

I'm using a high resolution monitor(2560x1600). As a result, all the the toolbar fonts and menu fonts are small and hard to see. I do not want to lower the screen resolution as this would defeat the purpose of this monitor.. Will the new CS6 have the ability to increase font sizes to accommidate Hi-Res monitors?

Thanks

    Sounds like the blog post Jeffrey posted a few days ago addresses a fix in Photoshop CC but I dont see anything about that in the linked post.

    Jeffery was there a fix for CC? What about say CS4 (v11).

    • its not like high resolution monitors came out last week. They are around for a long time and most Photoshop users who use your software professionally work on high resolution displays.

      so you just coming up with the new feature, which shouldnt be really new, sounds pretty lame to me.
    • I forgot that we have to go to 200% scaling in order to fix the photoshop small menu problem and at the same time make everything super big and unusable.

      How about you take a screen shot of adobe cc 2014 on different resolutions and upload it here so everyone can see how big the rest of windows will be they upscale to 200%, before they listen to you and waste their money and upgrade to another useless version that really doesnt adress the issue?

    And I see you guys remove comments just because you dont have an answer to it. That is really disappointing

    If you read all the comments they go back to almost 2 years ago and people complaining about the same issues.

    Seriously when are you guys going to fix the user interface problem on high resolution displays?

    • Chris Cox, unfortunately, most of the complaints seem to be related to the fact that 200% is way too much scaling. I recognize that CC 2014 seems to draw it's own menus, rather than relying on the OS, but to choose a value that is no where near what the OS has natively doesn't seem to make sense.
    • I do want to thank Adobe on one thing. Prior to the 2014.2 update, the use of the TKAction panel (custom panel) was almost unusable. Now, the controls scale to fit the host. Great work on this. Thanks.

  • You know by saying upgrade to CC 2014, you might as well say wait another 2 years and probably in 2016 we will have another software that will be a lot better that what we currently have.

    Because right now you cant really fix any problem.

  • I will write about this and they way you guys provide support and solution to your customers on my blog.

    We will see if that is going to get your attention then
    • Roland, we get it that you are mad. We also get that you are using CS6, and you will not see a fix (that's like asking Ford to fix the faulty wipers in your '82 Mustang). This discussion is about CC2014 and the problems that exist for that version. You and your 60+ messages last night totally was blowing up my phone, and I just want to state for the record that at this point you are simply being petulant and annoying. Please stop.

    just an update for the rest of people who follow this blog or forum or what ever it is that adobe is providing.

    Chris recommends to upgrade to CC 2014 but if you read their other blog people have problems with the CC 2014 as well. If you want to fix the problem then you have to go to a 200% scaling on windows. But guess what, everything will be so gigantic that is not even usable for the users.

    You can read about it here http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...

    Dont waste your money on CC 2014.

    Jeffrey you mentioned dont swear on this site.

    seriously, how about you provide an answer other than just the usual 2 lines that seems more like copy and paste.

    I think users put a lot of their time writing about their frustrations here.

    How about you do the same thing and answer their questions properly other than just a short answer?

  • Well, the issue is not really fixed. Bridge CC as well as Camera RAW does not have any solution on the problem. Running CC and win7 with a 31.5 inch DELL monitor (4k). It is surprising to say the least that a company like Adobe ignore their own products to be developed in line with customers preferences and technology developments in general. Also, 4K monitors are out on the market at lower prices now and for smaller screens so the problem is getting worse. For a 24 inch screen I would need a microscope to see and read the text in Bridge CC. Nice!

    • OK, tried this but where do I set the UI setting for camera raw? Cannot find any such setting which is needed. Still the same tiny UI. Only a kid with a supersharp eye can use the software. And actually, in the program management application window for CC, the letter and other info while installing, is so tiny that it is virtually impossible to see what is going on.
      Anyway, I couldn't find a way to use this new feature to be able to use the sw camera raw in a proper way.
      Also, in windows, there is a setting "Custom" for the scale. People complain that 200% is too much. I set it to 175%, which is pretty OK for a 31,5 inch display
    • Of course, setting the window scaling at 175% totally defeats the purpose of even HAVING a high-rez display in the first place. Not exactly a good solution just to be able to use the software.

    This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Total frustration.

    Why does Chris and Jeffrey Tranberry delete so many comments? This in itself is an indication of a major problem in an area. If this is deleted, I'll try to find the next level of management. There are many customers upset with Photoshops lack of response to just wanting a viewable size font on a HiRes monitor. We are continually being told this is a new feature. We only want what was taken away not something new

  • I’m cranky at corporate shenanigans
    To Chris, Jeffery, et al:

    It has been officially stated that, and I quote, "The menu font size in the 2014.2.x release of Photoshop CC is determined by the operating system settings."

    I dispute that statement as being blatantly false, and here are MORE screenshots to back my assertion. Yes, this is the most current version of CC2014. You will not that OTHER CC apps scale up just fine.

    I am curious to see if there will be ANY official response whatsoever to this entry.
