I have been searching for a while and couldn't find a solution for this issue, maybe I just missed it but it is not possible to work with such a small UI that I can barely read the letters.
For comparison I added the opening screen from Illustrator and also InDesign, whenever I open a setting it is so huge I have to move it from side to side whenever I try to use it because the software thinks my computer has a bigger screen for some reason.
Thanks in advance
What OS? What is your monitor pixel size? Are you using any sort of text enlargement settings?
From your screen captures, I can see you're on Windows.
And yes, the UI is phenominally miniscule on high-resolution monitors running Windows.
And yes, it doesn't happen when running Illustrator, Acrobat, or Photoshop on the same monitor.
Try these suggestions:
I sure wish Adobe would correct this problem, which doesn't seem to affect folks on Macs. I good prod to Adobe on their www.InDesign.UserVoice.com "wish list" forum might get some movement.
There is no such setting in Preferences on Mac. No 'UI Scaling' preference. What gives?
The UI scaling for InDesign on Windows is a hot mess and I've been complaining for years. While other apps have been updated, InDesign's scaling is still based on Windows Vista technology.
You need to match the percentage with the O/S scaling at either 100, 150 or 200 percent. Anything else is awful and heaven help you if you have two monitors with different scaling.
