Photoshop: Adjusting path and transform nudge increment (4K display)

Is there a way to adjust the increment of nudging (using arrow keys) for paths/points and transform?

I've recently changed my display to a 4K one, and settled on using the scaled mode in MacOS ("Looks like 2560 x 1440" setting) otherwise the UI is too big in Photoshop and other apps.

With the 4K display, the increment of nudging feels too small and too slow (paths and transform) and when I press shift the increment is too big (paths only).

It feels like it's half of the step/speed of what it is on the non high DPI monitor (I have one as a second monitor so can compare directly).

I'm not using 'Snap vector tools to pixel grid', the step is too big/imprecise then.

I've experimented with Key repeat settings in MacOS preferences, it does make it faster but doesn't address the small step increment and brings out problems with typing.

System: MacOS 10.5.5, Photoshop 21.2.0, Mac Pro 2019, Eizo CG2740 display.

I've searched for this topic and can't find it discussed before, sorry if it was!

Currently there isn't a way to customize this. I can convert this to a feature request.

Thanks Jeffrey. I think it would be an useful feature, especially for scaled display resolutions.
