I'm using inDesign 9.2 since yesterday and I find the interface elements incredibly small. For example when selecting the TEXT tool and looking at the options on top bar (fonts, alignment, etc), it takes some effort to, say, increase font size by clicking on the up arrow in font size section:
Is there any way to make it look a little bit less ant-like and make it easier to use?
No. The only way to make the user Interface larger is to reduce the resolution of your monitor or get a larger monitor.
Although at times I think about investing in these...
I was at an InDesign User's Group meeting last night at a local university, and this question came up. Apparently there isn't a way to increase the GUI icon sizes (at least according to the experts presenting last night).
If enough of us complain to Adobe, maybe they'll change that in the future?
