Hello,

Does anyone know if there is a way to enlarge the ruler on the sides of my workspace?  I have a large high resolution monitor and its harder to see the small numbers on the rulers.  Thanks.

Felipe

Moved from Illustrator Draw (mobile app) to the Illustrator forum.

Have you adjusted your UI scaling for high PPI displays?

Some screen elements may still be small even with UI scaling in effect. There seems to be some motion towards a solution to this long standing problem:

Thanks Michael,

Unfortunately, this change did not change my ruler size.  I was looking for a function that would allow me to make the lines and numbers larger, easier to see from afar.  Similar to changing the font size on text.

Thanks again.
