You can't make any changes to the UI. All elements are fixed on the screen.

Hopefully this is future development. I play on a Big Screen TV and the font size for subtitles and UI is just to small.

From Swtor team

New Content – We will be adding new content to the galaxy on an ongoing basis. These worlds will include Operations, Flashpoints and solo content.

Guild Functionality – Guilds are important to the long term health of any MMORPG. We have a huge list of guild centric features. This will be an ongoing effort that will probably never end. Guild banks are the first thing we’ll be delivering in our plans for increased guild functionality. Eventually we even want to deliver on the promise of the long hinted at “Guild Capital Ships”.

UI customization – You like choice. We hear you! SWTOR is all about choice. Being able to choose how you interact with an online game is something we feel is very important. We are going to be giving more control over the UI as an ongoing effort. This is a very big priority for us.

PvP – We have an entire team dedicated to adding content and features to player vs. player. We have some of the most experienced PvP developers in the world on this team. So far very few people have seen, or know much about the stunning Open World PVP on Ilum; when you get to the high levels prepare to be blown away! In addition to that high level PVP content, expect new Warzones and new PvP features on a regular basis.
Space Combat – We will continue to add missions to the space game. We also have a special project going on right now that will expand space gameplay in a significant way… for now the details will have to remain under wraps.
Legacy System – The ability to select a surname for your character is just the start of something much bigger. Soon, the Legacy experience and levels you earn will grant your characters access to powers, objects and other cool benefits.

And more – We have an entire team of developers working on future content. Right now we are focused on nothing else but Star Wars: The Old Republic, so expect new and cool things.

Well, to be fair, you CAN move and resize the chat window, and choose a larger font size for it, so at least that much of it is customizable.

Since you can't move anything else, though, there aren't a lot of choices for where to put the chat box. I was very happy you could chang the font size, though. Makes it easier on my old eyes.

The current UI seems too large at high resolutions (on monitors at least). Action bars take up alot of screen real estate for something that should be little more than a reference (mouse clicking is bad, m'kay!)

I hope basic UI customization like scaling is added soon. I'm actually quite surprised and disappointed by how little it can currently be customized, especially with how much other MMO's have progressed on that front.

I play on a 42" Samsung TV and I feel like the UI is the most dominant thing on the screen. It really needs to be toned down. Just a UI Scale slider until mods or further customization becomes available, is all I ask. :P

I was pleasantly surprised at the UI customization in Rift, and was hoping for a similar system in SWTOR.

I really hope the "UI customization" is one of the first things they add. I am getting a headache from playing the game because the text is so tiny. (Not all of us are 20-somethings with perfect vision.)

Right now, I have a 24" monitor and have to lean across the keyboard to read the subtitles when aliens speak.
