I bought a Surface Pro 4 days ago, it has a very high resolution. But the maximum UI scaling is 125%. It is so hard for me to read the menu. I don't want to use a lower resolution. When CCP can give us more larger options of the scaling...?

I've been asking for this for years. Resolutions keep going up making the text smaller and smaller. I'm getting older and older and my eyesight is growing worse and worse.

Well, they haven't completely ignored me, they now allow increasing font size in chat windows. But all these windows are xml right? Let us increase the text size already. Future proof the windows please.

But I guess no one at CCP is going to do anything to fix this problem until the Dev's eyes go bad and they start having to squint and go to bed early because of the headaches.

My choice of pronouns is based on your avatar. Even if I know what is behind the avatar.

Just got back to EVE after a long break and I now use a TV as a monitor and I can only agree, 125% is not enough.

How to give the CCP a effective feedback? It seems like they don't need any feedback or bug fix...

They actually do listen to a lot of feedback and they have responded to some of my suggestions. It's kinda cool being in game and seeing a change I recommended.

But for some reason, text size and UI has been one of the things CCP hasn't been interested in changing. And years ago, it was less of an issue, but it will only become a bigger issue as time goes by.

Well, there's a temporary fix right there, but you refuse to do it


e: of course, none of this is to say that the scaling problem isn't quite bad, to say the least
