InDesign needs UI Scaling like Illustrator and Photoshop
Now that Illustrator and Photoshop offer UI scaling (for tools, panels, etc.), it would be great to see this feature implemented in InDesign as well. Since the UI was changed significantly in InDesign 2015.4, many have complained that it wastes too much space (especially when on a laptop or smaller screen), while others prefer the more spacious UI. It would be great if we could have the option to scale it to our liking.
Designers use their eyes all day every day, and we need to be able to use the latest tech and design tools like 4k monitors. Please give us the option to scale the UI so we can see what we're doing. This seems like a no-brainer.

I'm sure this falls on deaf ears. This feature has been complained about and requested for at least five years. but here goes
The UI scaling is TOO SMALL< WITH NO OPTION TO RESIZE IT. I've used selections always suggested, but it doesn't change a thing. I have started using my 55" TELEVISION as a monitor, just so i can make out all the tiny text and panel icons--this is something Adobe creative CC should have fixed YEARS ago. Most of us are aware of the damage caused by using regular computer monitors with no adjustment for bright light and clarity. I, myself, now have permanent vision damage, which is why i'm using TCL televisions (for watching and for monitors with my PC). this is the best i can do right now, but I BEG OF YOU, PLEASE DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS UI text size. it's only going to get worse for all your customers. It's just absurd that the text is so small on a professional program that many professionals use on larger screens.
