    On my 27" iMac everything looks so small to me, especially if dont have my face stuck on the screen! :)
    I used to remember once that a feature called resolution independence would arrive on a new macOS and it would solve this problem. It would be able to make bigger texts on the OS and apps so that there wouldnt have to be any squinting anymore. Something like the zoom feature that browser apps have, Is there something like this on macOS? Im not talking about the Zoom in the accessibility menu.

    You can go to the system preferences and use hidpi scaling to get a smaller screen resolution that isn't blurry.

    System Preferences > Monitor > hold option and click on Scaling.
    That's how I use it sometimes on my iMac.

    Thanx but thats a zoom feature. I want something permanent, a text-only enlargement will do for me, dont need to enlarge everything

    Can this enlargement thing be a Adobe CC feature? Can menu text etc. be enlarged in CC?

    I don't think so. Since Apple removed the ability to resize UI elements.

    You could potentially do it with Mach injection/override.
