I would like to have an answer for this as well. The MATLAB toolstrip fonts are much smaller than the toolstrip fonts of the other applications that I use.

I too would like answer to this. I have the same problem in 2014a running under Windows 7. The other text (address bar, current folder, etc) are a decent font size, but the ribbon/toolstrip font and icons are barely readable on 3200 x 1800 resolution. All other applications seem fine (Visual Studio 2013, Chrome, etc).

Agreed. Same issue on Redhat EL6. I adjusted the fonts and the dpi settings. Neither affected the toolstrip. Help MATLAB!

Is there really no way to change the size of icons on the command ribbon?

I am using a surface pro 3 at native resolution and the matlab interface was just too small to use (in other programs, i have no difficulty with this).

I managed to change the size of all text and some parts of the matlab UI, but not the command ribbon. In solid edge for example, there was an option to increase the size of ribbon icons by 2X, which worked excellent. Is there no such option in matlab 2014?

You can change it through you OS configuration. Matlab does not control the sizes of toolstrip icons since that is a parameter controlled by the OS.

thanks for your answer David. Would you please telling me how to do that?

This response is inadequate because, for example, the font of the MATLAB toolstrip is smaller than the font of the Microsoft Word toolstrip font. In fact, it is ridiculously smaller. I want to increase the font of the MATLAB toolstrip without affecting the Microsoft toolstrip. Is there anyway to do this?

If you are a Windows User, go to Control Panel->Screen. Set the configuration that best suits your needs

Hi, What would you suggest for a GNU/Linux user? specifically, if the OS is Ubunti 12.04. Response will be really useful. Regards
