I am running XPlane 11.20 on a 4K monitor. Popup windows from plugins use a very tiny font that is basically unreadable. Is it possible to increase the font size for these windows?

The answer depends on what version of the SDK the plugin is using. The old version (the gray, X-Plane 10 look) does not scale. I believe using the newer SDK enables UI scaling. Whether you are using VR or not also affects plugin scaling--in VR, changing the window size by grabbing a corner scales the visible text up or down.
