    Why is there no UI scaling for Mac?

    The UI is only readable when having the screen set to 1080p.

    If I set it to 1440p it strains my eyes because of how small the text is. And I'm working on a 27" Monitor.

    Having to change my monitor resolution in order to be able to work is horrible obviously, setting the OS to a resolution that it's not the actual monitors one will result in everything looking blurry.

    This feature is available on Windows so why not macOS?

    Apple have just finally added in macOS Sonoma the ability to change text size in Accessibility settings, can't there be some sort of integration with that feature?

    Thanks for your time.

    I feel the same way. Unity Editor should definitely have a UI Scale on Mac and Linux like the Windows version. For me, it's a matter of presentation in videos for instruction.

    Getting this corrected has been a longstanding hope/complaint and the remedies are not great. Here is another thread about it: https://forum.unity.com/threads/editor-ui-scaling.721424/
