The first time I used Lightroom CC, I found some of the text size too small, so increased it in the preferences panel to large. Although it seemed to have no effect at the time, now I have gone in a second time the font is far too large to fit the screen. So large in fact that I cannot get to the control to set the text size back. The screen won’t scroll up to it, so I’m completely stuck. Any help would be really usefull as at the moment it’s completely unusable.

Hi Tim, one way to resolve this is by resetting all the local preferences:
  • Close Lightroom.
  • Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.
  • Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
  • Close and restart Lightroom.

Thanks for the help. I actually fixed it when I updated to the new version. I was able to scroll up to the relevant field and reset the value.
