Adobe cs5 help needed.
« on: December 02, 2011, 09:21:00 AM »

I realise that this is ACR, but I have a question for Photoshop CS5, I don't know where to post it, so my apologies.
  I just had a surgery in my one eye & is difficult to see, so I need to increase the size of tabs in cs5. Is there any way I could achieve it. Only alternate I have is to use magnifying glass from widget, but one needs to turn it off, as soon as selection is made, kinda slows down the process. I do use 30" monitor, so the tabs are rather small.
  I hope I make sense & thanks in advance for any & all suggestions. :-[

Thank you very much. I followed your suggestion but it did not increase, not that much, if any. But thanks for the reply, that allowed me to think & change the resolution of my monitor from 2560x1600 to 1920x1200 that did help my size of tabs somewhat. Anything is better than changing my persona to 'Panama Jack'. ::)

You might try using your operating system font size settings.

In Windows preferences I set my fathers fonts to 150 percent and higher, this affected all software. Not sure how apple does it. Also changed the monitor resolution, that made a big difference.

Some software does not handle larger font size well, you'll have to play with it. If does not help it's easy to set back where you started.

Ah yes if you are running at 2560 not much you do with fonts will make a diff - you simply need to run a smaller res, or get a larger monitor.

Sean, I have the same problem - somewhat. I use a 27" monitor and have settled on 1600 x 1024 screen size. I could go even lower but this seems to work fine, even with all the PP work I do. I see no real need to use the maximum resolution as I can instantly zoom into the image using my mouse wheel. In preferences you can set the wheel to the zoom function (for PS CS5 only). I usually print 16 x 24 inch on 17 x 25 inch paper and sometimes much higher. I do not find the lower resolution a handicap. I also use prescription glasses set for the monitor distance. This really helps!
