I use Studio 2007 and Studio Seattle. My eyesight is getting worse with time. I know how to change the editor font, and I have. Is there a way to change the font size in other parts of the IDE ... such as the Project and Object Managers, the Object inspector, and the tool palette?

I recently asked for high-DPI support too and the reply was "we're working on it". So who knows.. Of course, they said the same thing years ago so you may have to wait a few more? I''m hopeful, even though I should know better by now ;).

What windows version are you using ?

Because my CB2009 IDE does scale in most places, I use win 7 pro 120 DPI
XP style scaling.

Like so many things, this worked fine in old BCB versions. They broke it a few years back.

It also works in most places in my new Berlin, I know there are trouble
when you use win 10, but that has to do with the new way win 10 manage
large font.

But You are right there is plenty of bugs that need fixing.:(
