    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

This plugin allows you to scale UE4/UE5 Editor's User Interface independent on OS DPI settings.


  • Making text size smaller helps maximize your screen real estate usage and get bigger viewport while still seeing the same or even greater amount of text informations (number of Outliner rows, lines in Output Log, number of properties in Details tab, etc.).
  • Making text bigger helps tune text readability to your liking and not depend on OS DPI settings.
