Does anyone know of a way to make the menus and type LARGER in the User Interface? I am using the new indesign CC on a nwer iMac large display. Everything is SO tiny, my eyes really strain to see and read all the menus and tools. Anyway to fix this?

Thanks!

    You can zoom the screen by setting key combinations and trackpad gestures in Mountain Lion's Preferences > Accessibility. In OS X 10.6.x and earlier, IIRC it's in Preferences > Universal Access.

    The InDesign engineers at Adobe hook up their 10GHz watercooled octacore SSD HD systems up to a 640x480 montior? #confused

    I think it's 1920 x 1080 so they can watch HD video, but the Max Age is well south of 40

    Collette, did you get help with your question? I have to squint to read the menus on InDesign CC on a 27-inch iMac.

    Probably I could somehow zoom, but I'd prefer to enlarge the size permanently.

    Thanks,

    There is nothing you can do inside the user interface. It's squint, change the screen resolution, try Peter G.'s recommendation, or get magnifiers.

    I changed the display to 1600 x 900, and everything's just gorgeous!

    Of course it plays havoc with my finder folders' layout, but that's easy to fix.

    By the way, I just had discovered another solution, and that was to return to

    InDesign CS6, which displays very readably at my original 2048 x1152 setting.

    Since there's nothing new that I use in InDesign CC, I probably will just

    return to the previous  version. Seems as if the Adobe re-coding geniuses over-

    amped themselves. So often that's the case with newer versions (I'm thinking

    of MIcroSoft Word, whose lastest version behaves an elephant with a serious

    weight problem.)

    Thanks so much,

    Maximum R
