Proposal
As most of you already know, you can already scale the font size for the chat window, hover text, chat bubbles, and player/NPC names, etc., but what I'm asking is allow scaling for all the other UI font sizes, like the quest tracker, tool tip fonts, and so on.
Motivation
Most of the UI fonts are far too small for me to read without squinting and getting eye-strain over hours long play sessions, and it also makes it much more difficult for me to stream the game because I constantly have to stop what I'm saying and lean in to read the super small text.
Justification
Almost all other text in the game can be scaled already. I've seen other servers and mods that allow for this. Shouldn't be terribly difficult to implement (I hope)!

Even if it's not an in-game option, even a downloadable separate file, I'd greatly appreciate it!

I know this has been looked at before and its not a simple request - and that there are many other higher priority things out there. But as we have much higher resolutions than we did in 2003, and my eyes aren't what they were then either, I support this!!

A suggestion till this does become a thing. Even if you're on a 4k monitor like I am. Change your desktop resolution to 1920x1080 and use that resolution for SWG. Make's it really easy to see everything and nothing should be terribly small.

I play on a 1366 by 768 and I can change it to double that, however; the UI is either too small or too big. A slider scale that allows for UI resizing universally or individually would be awesome.
