    I find the font size of the new context menu too small to read on non retina monitor.
    here you can see both native menu and the new internal menu of unity 2023.

    It's really a lot smaller and harder to read for me.
    also please make the corners a bit rounded, not much but just a bit to remove the sharp corners to be consistent with the rest of the unity interface.
    Left is native and easy to read, right is new and too small

    Hello @Lars-Steenhoff !
    I'll show this font size suggestion to our UX designer.
    As for rounded corners, our platform code capabilities are a bit limited in that regard. In the end, we decided we would leave corners not rounded for now.

    Thanks for passing it along to the UX designer, I hope the font size can be set in user preferences.
    As for rounded corners I'm sure someone can figure out how to get it done :) , most corners in unity have a slight radius of a few pixels. It does not need to be different per platform, on all platforms a little rounding will make it look more in line with the rest of the UI.

    ( even the search bar in the contextual menu has rounded corners )

    And last but not least the time to open a sub menu in the context menu is a bit slower that I would like, if this can be speed up 2x it will be perfect.

    It's also a bit hard to read on small retina monitors.

    I just tested unity 2023.2.0b5 and the font is still not changed, is there a way I can manually override this? or will the UX team make it larger in a next version?

    I did a bug report to see if this would help but its not technically a bug ( I would call it a usability issue/bug )

    CASE IN-49425
    I don't feel it's by design I think it's by using a retina monitor and therefore not directly seeing the problem. but its really worse compared to how it was. so at east its a regression in that regard.

    And its not like those menu's are never used, they are used every time I use unity, so please I hope this will be addressed.
