Hi Adobe Support

The menu txt is very small in Photoshop CC 2014, I see other users have a similar issue on larger monitors.

By adjusting the UI font size under preferences, the text size increases in the layers panel, which is nice, however the top menu remains small.

Maybe an additional setting can be added to the 'preferences' section 'ui' which allows users to select larger text on the main menu.

Please check the link below for more information from other users whom have the same issue.

It has been advised that a feature request be issued, however unsure how to do this and would imagine their are many users already with the same issue.

MacOS automatically scales for high res displays.
On Windows, you need Preferences -> Experimental Features -> Scale UI 200%.

Hi Chris

Thanks for the reply, yes have tried this in the past and it looks good, ie. everything is scaled and sharp, however it is far too large.

Maybe if Adobe could have an option of smaller percentages ie. 175%, 150%, etc. then users can choose the most viable setting for their windows system.

Please note from what I gather the users having this original issue with the menu being shrunk, seems to be related to users setting their 'Windows Display' settings too 125% scaling instead of the standard 100%.

This may be the reason the experimental feature is too large as it's an additional 50% bigger on top of the already 200% magnification.

I will check the results of different magnification settings and see what I get.

Please check included screenshots as reference.

We are still working with Microsoft to resolve problems with the Windows scaling APIs, and hope to have more complete support in the future.
