I'm using a high resolution monitor(2560x1600). As a result, all the the toolbar fonts and menu fonts are small and hard to see. I do not want to lower the screen resolution as this would defeat the purpose of this monitor.. Will the new CS6 have the ability to increase font sizes to accommidate Hi-Res monitors?

Thanks

Support for scalable UI for high resolutions monitors has been implemented for Macintosh (Retina Display support in Photoshop CS v13.x) and Windows 7 and Windows 8 (Photoshop CC v2014).

To access the scaling feature in CC 2015, select Preferences>User Interface and set the UI scaling pop-up to "200%" for HiRes displays.

In CC 2014, this feature can be found under Preferences>Experimental Features and enable "Scale UI 200%"

As of the 2014.2 release or later of Photoshop the engineering team has made some changes to the way that Menus are scaled. See update announcement here:http://blogs.adobe.com/photoshopdotco...

The menu font size in the 2014.2.x release of Photoshop CC is determined by the operating system settings. For example, on Windows 8.1, you can adjust the menu font size by following the steps in the “Make text and other items on the desktop larger” section of this Microsoft Help topic.
