I have photoshop 5.1 the user interface face size in preferences does not work. I tried since oct 3 to get a solution from adobe but they can't fix it or they don't know how. anyone else have the problem. I would like to have a larger font size for palettes and panels so they are easier to read.

Hi Joe, let me see if I can help you.

First, what operating system are you working on? Windows or Mac? Which version, like Win7 or OS 10.7.2?

If you want we can continue this by email, just let me know, ok?

Thanks!
David

Do other preferences stick after quitting and relaunching?

Do you get any warnings about not being able to save preferences when you quit?

And are you relaunching Photoshop after changing the font size preference?

OK, that's odd. We internally change a lot of values, and change the type size for the UI according to the user preference.
And I haven't heard of anyone else having this problem - the UI size always obeys the preference.

google it, pal. Nobody is getting user preferences to respond. Disingenuous response.

Changing the UI Font size in Prefs>Interface>Text no longer works. It did work after I installed CS6 - I was able to change to the Medium setting, and change it back to Small. Now the actual text size stays at Small, even though it is set to medium. This afterafter I restart PSx64.

I have deleted CS6x64 prefs. Didn't help. Updated today - (says 13.0.1, though I believe the updater said it would update Photoshop to 13.0.1.1)

Windows Appearance and Personalization>Display is set to the default - Smaller. I wonder it may have to do with changing that size - I had tried setting that to Medium - 125%, but set it back to the default Smaller - 100%. Not sure when the PS UI text size stopped working.

I know this is a common problem - I hope that my mentioning changing the Windows 7 Display from 100% to 125% and then back to 100% will give someone a clue.

resolution on my NEC PA301W is the default 2560 x 1600.

new Windows 7 x64 HP Z220 machine.

My mistake - I expected the font size to change on the drop down menus. I realize now that it effects panels etc. So changing the UI Font size to Large is working as well as it is supposed to work.On my 2560x1600 screen, the difference is not immediately apparent.
