I'm having some issues with the system font on my high-dpi display.

I have a 15.6" 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) display, and despite having the font size in the Universal Access settings set to "Larger", I still find the system font hard to read occasionally. Is there a way to scale this larger?

Additionally, system icons don't appear to scale well -- ex, the network/Bluetooth/battery/notifications icons on the top of the display.

I'm using Elementary 5.0 (Juno).

So, I found that setting the text-scaling-factor as in this answer helped a lot with my issues, including the application specific problems I was having. Didn't particularly fix the icon issues, tho.
