You set the UI font size in Photoshop preferences, and that works for everyone else. The only reason it would fail is if you can't write into the registry for some reason.

The OS scaling won't work.

The large option is already pretty huge, and no there is no larger option.

The Dell U3011 is a common display at about 100 dpi (30 inch, 2560x1600) - that should work fine with normal size fonts (unless you're trying to sit 6 feet away from it).

Does the text in Photoshop look smaller than in other applications?

Do you have any utilities installed on your system that might be interfering with UI drawing and causing Photoshop to draw the text smaller than it should?

I find out that my same issue is already "under consideration" here

http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...?

Okay, I will keep waiting for update from you

But that topic is closed
Then how/where can I follow the update?

No, the "under consideration" request is for allowing Photoshop to scale the UI (mostly done on MacOS, waiting for Microsoft on Windows). That topic will be updated when there is something to report.

You are reporting something that is not normal: the Photoshop UI fonts drawing smaller than they should. We don't know what might cause that, and I still suspect that something is odd on your system.

I am experiencing the same thing as Mini says.... using Windows 8.1 on my Wacom Companion it will not change the UI Font size.

Userinterface is so small on this (small but high res screen) that my eyes hurt ... I do hope that Adobe can fix this problem soon.

If you have a high DPI display, then that is not the subject of this topic -- this topic is about a normal (100 dpi) display showing small fonts for some reason. There are already topics discussing Photoshop on a higher resolution display.

And if you change the font size in Photoshop's preferences and don't see the font size change after restarting Photoshop -- something is wrong with your system.
