Tiny size indicators on high-resolution displays

I have Windows 10 and a display with a resolution of 2560x1440 and a scaling of 150%. Illustrator displays tiny size indicators. Take a look at the screenshots.

This is a long-standing problem with the scaling of the Illustrator interface. Please correct it, my eyes hurt.

    When transforming everything is fine, but when you draw, the size indicators are small

    Start watching the screenshots from the last one - path-1.png

    Provide a way to increase tab size AND font size in UI - PC settings don't seem to affect a change within the app and the font is tiny on screen with no way to increase.

    My new 4k laptop doesn't display the Adobe UI correctly in AI, PS, and other standard CS6 programs. I'm seeing that this complaint has been around for a couple of years, so it seems like there should be a fix by now. (I've tried the workarounds posted online to no avail.)

    The handles on the WYSYIG tab ruler are tiny and really, really, really fiddly and hard to work with.

    Arrrrh!!

    Menu options and tools icons are tiny. Adjusted computer display settings but they are all still tiny.
