Right no comment because most of the time the small font is caused by high resolution screens where everything is extremely small. There is a setting in all the most modern operating systems to scale the UI. Most set it to 200%.
Agreed. However, increasing the font size (& therefore panel width size) leaves less and less room for the image. You may not want it oversized permanently either, as often youll want to see the whole contents of a panel.
With this brilliant screen zoon utility you simply set a hot key (ie num pad *) and when you press it you get a doubling of the screen zoom at the cursor position, handy for reading those pesky hard to read develop setting values. I find it helps the tireder I get.
Try it, and see. It's free.
