Rack zoom please!

The knobs and sliders on the instruments in the rack are very small. It would be very useful (and probably not very difficult to implement) to be able to zoom the rack view! This function would make synth programming more accessible!

I agree - it would be very useful.

Yes, please! As resolutions get higher and higher, it gets more and more difficult to recognize the small fonts and values on devices. I would love to see a scalable UI.

A scalable/vector based UI would be awesome! People (I among them) have been asking for it quite a while (since R5 at least) and it seems that Reason is finally moving into that direction via the REs and SDK (mandatory 3D/vector GUIs). That and the work done on iOS devices (touchy/feely and all that)... I bet the folks at PH are working on a smart and highly usable implementation of it already*

* Wishful thinking but hey... one can always dream.

It would be cool. And use vector graphics so the images don't pixelate. FWIW - If you sit arms-length from your screen, it'll probably help but I agree it could be a lot bigger.

The main issue is the increasingly higher pixel densities of modern screens and the fact that bitmap graphics do not scale. Bad combo usability & usefulness wise.

I don't remember the shortcut on MacOS, but on Windows you can use WIN + + (plus) and WIN + - (minus) to use the integrated OS zoom.

It's not perfect, but it's a good workaround
