I have a 27″ IMac running Yosemite 10.10.2. Its native screen resolution is 2560×1440.
When I opened CC Indesign 2014 for the first time I was shocked to see that the tools and rest of the user interface were SO SMALL that I was having tremendous difficulty seeing them clearly. I'm talking 5 and 6 point type!!! And the icons... minuscule!
I lowered the resolution of the display, but type then becomes fuzzy. I searched the web and found that there were others who were having the same problem.
I find it hard to believe that a company specializing in software for the design/creative community would overlook something as CRITICAL as size of the graphical user interface and its customization to work optimally on different platforms and with different display sizes and to satisfy the particular needs of each user.
The UI obviously greatly impacts our working speed and facility.
I called Adobe and their tech support could not help. I called Apple and got the same.
I've been a graphic designer for over 20 years. Frankly, at this point, I find the suite UNusable (I took a quick look at Photoshop and Illustrator and the same issue applies).
This is just unbelievable! Anyone out there have an answer?
Someone suggested we should repeat our complaints INDEPENDENTLY in the general forum instead of them being buried on one thread. GREAT IDEA!!
I'm in the same boat, and it's incredibly frustrating.
Like you, I'm disappointed that Adobe, who specializes in design software, has overlooked UI customization and has yet to develop a solution for it. I hope they make finding a solution a priority.
