Illustrator- Scroll Bars are Tiny and Hard to Move

Hi,

 

I started a new position and had to switch to a Mac computer. I have mainly used Microsoft when using my Adobe programs. 

 

I created a new document and noticed that the scroll bars are so tiny that they are hard to see and grab. I like to see where the scroll bars lie when I am zoomed in. It helps me get an idea of how far I am on the artboard/canvas. It is driving me kind of crazy. It doesn't seem to matter how big my artboard is or change in size when I zoomed in and out (which I remember it did change in size when I used AI on Microsoft). 

 

Is there a way to change the size of this? Is there something that I am doing wrong? 

 

And before you comment about "ways around it"... I already know that there is 🙂 I am specifically asking for this only. I personally feel having such a tiny dot amongst a long large scroll bar is a stupid design- (as I assume my comments will be "you can't change it"- Ugh!). 

 

Thanks!

You are referring to those things in the scrollbars that you grab? That is their size. You zoom in or out and they do not get bigger.

I don't remember when was the last time I actually grabbed one of these things to scroll, so I would most probably be that person to tell you about workarounds. So I can't help you there.

The scroll bars do not change size when you zoom in. (I'm on Windoze)

I don't know what the "tiny dot" you are referring to is.
