Customize Font Size and Window Layout

Post by ulim »

Is it possible to make (for me) important fields larger (so they don't overflow) and the font size bigger, while losing some less important fields? I have included a screenshot that shows some of the things I would like to adjust.

I definitely second this request (I was going to post about that). With hi-dpi displays at higher resolutions (which of course are very useful for working on images) fonts are way too small. I hoped that macOS Sonoma fixed this with a global settings, but I see it doesn't affect automatically applications.

Psu uses the os settings. To get larger fonts, up the text size in macOS display settings.
FYI, that doesn’t impact image displaying. Images are always displayed at the monitor’s native resolution…hi-dpi

If you're referring to the option of macOS versions prior to Sonoma that concerned the text size (as explained here), it changed the overall resolution of the screen. PSU surely uses the max dpi available, but the operating system has already reduced it.

In any case that option is no more available in Sonoma — or, better, it has been redesigned and correctly called as “display resolution”.

Sonoma has a new setting for changing text size without affecting resolution, but it doesn't work for any application other than the system ones enumerated in the panel (see below). Actually I have to resize fonts in each application that allows to do that (e.g. Firefox, Thuderbird, IntelliJ Idea...).

This is what I'm referring to in macOS Sonoma 14.5

By adjusting the scaling in the OS, that does not impact image quality, only fonts and UI components. That is how scaling works. You don't need to configure macOS (or Windows for that matter) to use no scaling to utilise the native resolution of your monitor to display images. Images are always displayed at full resolution capability, regardless the scaling setting. Scaling is for your convenience.
