The text is too small on my MacBook Pro! I want larger text for better readability and I'm confounded as to why it should be so difficult to achieve. I am happy with the text size (and quality) on my old 2008 MacBook Pro running Tiger, but not that on my new (late June 2012) HiRes matt MBP running Lion. I have both machines next to each other and the small text appears to have decreased about 2 point sizes over 4 years. I know that font size is adjustable in individual apps, but that doesn’t usually change the size in the menu bars. I guess that 70% of my apps cannot be adjusted. Besides, I also run Windows under Parallels and many Windows apps also have tiny text. TinkerTool System and Quartz utilities don't work for me. Does anybody have or is anybody working on a user-friendly solution for this please? I guess a system-wide font increase of approx 20% would be OK. I still have the option to return my new HiRes MacBook Pro or exchange it for a Retina. However, I would prefer to keep mine because I want a matt screen and a DVD drive. Also, I'm uncertain whether I could achieve my goal even with a Retina display. To avoid digression, I would appreciate on-topic responses and not persuaders as to why I should buy eyeglasses, accept a glossy screen (or add a matt film) or do without a DVD. Thanks in advance.
