Photoshop Font Size too big or too small on high-res monitor

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: Menu too small on Windows high res display

I have a color-calibrated, high resolution monitor (2560 x 1440) on Windows 7 64-bit SP1, and the font size on Photoshop is either too large or too small. I've tried all the UI Font Size and UI Scaling options, and restarted PS each time, and no matter what I pick, the font is either too tiny to see without getting very close to the screen, or so large that only a small portion of the UI is left visible for the photo (i.e. it's not practical to use PS to edit photos). I've also been through all the Windows controls for font size. They don't fix the PS issue, they simply mess up the fonts for all the other applications. Lightroom and all my other applications (email, browsers, word processing, etc.) look fine on this monitor, it's only Photoshop fonts that are problematic. I've called support multiple times about this issue, and they always say sorry, it will be fixed in the next release, but the next release comes and it's never fixed. I updated PS again today (Aug. 6, 2015) and have the latest, and it's still not fixed. Today support suggested I ask the question here to get a better estimate as to if and when this will be fixed. Can someone help? BTW, if I use Photoshop on my second monitor (1920 x 1080), the fonts work reasonably well. But I'd sure like to use my expensive, color-calibrated monitor with PS--that's why I bought it.
Please advise, and thanks.
