I like to make the UI Large - for my old eyes and because it's easier for my students to see on my screen when I teach and make training videos. The problem is that with the UI text set to the largest settings in the preferences, the Character panel doesn't grow with the text and my options are cut off - I can't choose my font style like normal, bold, etc. The drop down arrow is completely cut off.

Are you on Mac or Windows? If on Windows, what is your UI scaling factor set to? and what is the resolution of your monitor? Can you post a screenshot of your entire screen when the text is cutoff for us to try and replicate?

iMac, late 2012 with additional monitor. Screen resolution doesn't matter, this is on the external monitor set to 1920x1080. It looks the same on my 27" iMac screen.

OK. Try this. Preferences > Interface... and check "Scale UI to Font" and restart. Does it look correct?

Yes, that worked :). I keep resetting my preferences to make video tutorials and then I reset the prefs to my liking. I need a "remember" button. So many things I customize!
