I bought a Surface Book and installed photoshop there, in order to be able to draw 'on the road'. I've got a home pc though. But when I open the program, all the script like the writings on top but also all symbols, toolbars are tiny. I almost can't read them and it feels like they are 2pt small. I tried to change it with Pre-Settings (de: Voreinstellungen) > User's Surface (de: Benutzeroberfläche) > UI = Big. But somehow it even got smaller! After about 5 minutes my eyes began to hurt because it's so tiny! I can't work like that! Does anyone have an idea?
click edit>preferences>ui interface>text>large, 200%. restart to see difference
I forgot to mention that I've got the old photoshop version (CS6 2012). I tried to do what you advised me to, but I fear this option is not yet available in my version ><. There is only one UI-option where I can choose between Big / Middle / Small - and it is already on big...
Do you have another idea?
it will never be available in CS6. CS6 is "end of life". If you upgrade hardware or systems or cameras or monitors, expect to budget for software upgrades too. $10/month for Photoshop now includes future upgrades.
Support at Adobe suggested too I downgrade my monitor... It infuriated me that that was their fix for this issue. Let me spend thousands on a camera and lenses to get a high quality RAW image and then edit it on a crappy display setting...
actually, adobe's fix was to upgrade their software to work with the latest hardware.
imo, you can't expect software companies to update their older software to work with hardware that wasn't available when their product was released.
... I dont have their older software. I have the latest, most updated version, you know, per the first sentence of my reply.
then what's the problem?
100% is too small and 200% is too big?
Correct. 100% is too small and 200% is odd. It's like almost comically big? It makes the area where you can edit the photo almost less than half the screen. There has to be a happy medium.
i too am having this problem but have the newest CC version. I have the 200% option but honestly, it makes everything too big and really degrades it. I've called Adobe support twice; the first gentleman kept telling me im stuck with the small font, the second suggested that I change PS running off my Intel GPU to my Nvidia GPU. I did and it still didn't work.
Just so you know, this is a huge problem out on the interwebs and Adobe doesn't care about it and tells people it's their monitor's fault. Well, I found this... Adobe App Scaling on High DPI Displays (FIX) | Dan Antonielli
I suggested this fix to the two support people I talked to; the first was confused and the second suggested I don't use any third party patches. THANKS ADOBE! HERE'S MY 9.99 THIS MONTH!!!
Anyway, I am not technically savvy with computers and have not tried this yet. Let me know how it works.
First of its a HACK
The minute you do a PS update the HACK will no longer work.
Secondly there is a fast ring insider build out from Microsoft that should fix the issue in the next 30 days.
another option would be to attach a second larger monitor with a lower resolution.
Been complaining about this for over a year. If is a simple solution I am sure it would have been fixed long ago.
"Secondly there is a fast ring insider build out from Microsoft that should fix the issue in the next 30 days." Please explain what this is and will this fix download automatically or do I have to go search for it?@
