I hope they change this a well, being forced to use a magnifying glass on a lot of text is taking away from my normal pace I play at, and is becoming very frustrating.
Changed screen res to 1440X900 worked for me

Would really like to see a UI scale added to the game. Atleast for text font size. Changing the resolution only seems to change how blurry the text is, but not the actual size. I'm playing on a 73" screen so.... I shouldn't be squinting everytime I try to read a tool tip or Codex entry. Fix it please Bioware! My only complaint so far. well that and broken gather nodes i can see but not click on lol

is because your on a tv. true font types dont show well on tv in any form. play at max res and at a desk, not in a lazyboy on a 60' plasma 15 feet away.

until they allow for tooltip scaling this is going to be a huge issue.

Click on the "Other" tab in your chat window and you can read what they said.

I, too, have a problem reading the text. They really do need to add a ui scale option.

DEVS, Please consider this a hot list item. Your folks with eyes older than 40 Terran years have genetic disadvantages here!

My only option is to play on my 40" viewsonic and the text size is a huge problem for me. I wish i could play at a desktop but my wife and kids use ours for school and everything else. plus that OS is Linux. Please include an upsdate that will fix this problem. Thank you!

I know it isn't an in game solution but the font size seems just fine to me when using a 32" screen. On a 24" it is certainly too cramped. Going live just before the holidays is hell for timely updates.

One thing for sure, itís a huge issue for me. I canít see what the quests are telling me to do, so I just guess and have to guess on what to sell, or keep, also.

Even after changing the font size on chat, itís still too small.
