It helps if you read the news and watch the videos...UI scaling is coming.

Yeah same for me, eyes hurt, and have to lean over the computer desk to read the small print and I actually sold some really nice lightsaber's because I misread Dark Level 1 as Dirk Level 1...

Guys I'm not being rude or trolling here but how bad are your eyes? I wear contacts / glasses and I can see the text fine, either you are reading the text from a very long distance away or you need to review your glasses' prescriptions ... I ask because I saw that one poster used 7 point text in his post and that is massive and way beyond what should be used if your eyes / glasses are working correctly.

I agree, text is to small. I play on my 50 inch plasma HDTV at 1920 by 1080. Game looks beautiful but practically have to sit on top of it to read some of the tool tips and such. Hope they allow to customize ui at some point.

I really hope they add this soon. As a long standing WoW player it's so frustrating to join a new game which is mostly awesome but have silly issues like being unable to read the skill trees for my characters, see what items I have in my bags or see what a party member is saying in chat (although I just found out from this thread you can change chat size, that's something at least).

If it wasn't for this issue I probably would have cancelled my WoW subscription, as it is, I've been debating whether to stick around on WoW until Pandamania, WoW is winning in that debate until this changes.

Btw - My eyesight is fine

Hm I have the opposite problem.. lol.

I made all my chat font the smallest size which is good but wish I could make some other text smaller.

Once they actually put the UI customization in I'm sure there will be more options for the text size.

Right click on the tab (Chat) and you should see a drop down (see though) font size list, i changed it from 14 to 16 and is much better for you,re eyes,

It seems like the only way to get this problem fixed is to keep this thread going. This is a pretty good thread describing how to get it fixed.

The more people that are having problems with their fonts and post here, the more likely it will be fixed quicker.

You need to read more.

They HAVE announced that UI changes are coming.
