This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: Support scalable user interface UI for high resolution monitors

ALL Adobe products require the same fix! Large monitors are NOT supported with full 1080p resolutions, period.

Here's the thing, full HD on a 50" screen for example, makes all the tools very small, and all UI text except for that which windows controls.

I've seen many posts with replies from the Adobe community staff about DPI, when they clearly do not grasp the fact DPI has NOTHING to do with images or there size, which includes all tools & text within Adobe interfaces.

So if I set the windows TEXT DPI to larger (150%), everything displays correctly from web browsers to many other software apps, except for Adobe products. Again, ignore the file / edit etc menu bar, I'm talking the products UI which you CAN NOT ALTER!

There's one small option within preferences for making the UI font small, medium or large, which has insignificant impact & again doesn't effect any tools.

Especially in todays world where monitor & tv sizes have increased & devalued, any artists working on larger screens are suffering. Generally it's OK for people with say 20 - 30" screens who sit at a desktop, but anything more, where you can't sit close to the screen, it's a problem.
It's also still a problem for some at those screen sizes too, however not so much so.

Having a fixed size UI, especially going into the future, just isn't good enough, I'm sure Adobe must be aware of 4k being around the corner & of general screen sizes & resolutions, so surely a solution where the customers can alter the interface, is far better than the out of date, fixed sizes.

Almost all areas of the UI can be moved, snapped & such, however they can not be enlarged, with all adobe products, this is the same problem, not just Photoshop.

Just as the designs for all Adobe products are universal, so should the options to change the interface in both size & layout, be universal accross all products.
