Menu text is too small in the most recent update of Photoshop CC

Menu text is too small in the most recent update of Photoshop CC. I tried setting the menu size to "med" and even "large" in the PS UI preferences, and I've restarted PS, and even my computer, but the menu text size is still the same. What am I missing?

Hi Tracy,

What OS are you running? Any special video card or monitor?

Thanks,
David

It's not due to the video card or monitor. Adobe uses there own code. We can change any other programs menu size on our systems by right clicking on the desktop. clicking screen resolution and than, "Make text and other items larger or smaller. Every program made except adobe product are effected by this.

I'm hoping with the introduction of higher res display abode will fix this soon so I don't need to buy a magnifying glass!

What OS version are you using?

Photoshop CC 2014 added UI Scaling for Windows, but it is a preference that you have to enable.

I am using both Mac and PC. If I remember right, I found that UI Scaling preference on PC, but it had no effect. In any case, I'm pretty much using exclusively Mac now, so it's no longer an issue for me.

On MacOS the UI scaling is automatically set by the OS.

On Windows the menus match the OS scaling, but the rest of Photoshop's UI is controlled by the 200% UI Scaling preference in Photoshop CC 2014.

Again, on Windows the menus in Photoshop CC 2014 match the OS scaling, and the icons and the rest of the UI is controlled by the 200% UI Scaling preference.

Make sure you have all the latest updates for Photoshop (should be version 15.2.2).
