Screen resolution problem on Mac OS 10.8
Submitted by Gregory on Monday, 13 May, 2013 - 11:38
After many years of happily using jEdit on a Windows machine, I have finally switched to a Mac. I have a 15" MacBook Pro with the Retina display, which gives amazingly high-resolution graphics. However, after installing jEdit 5.0.0 via the Mac disk image, the graphics resolution for jEdit is seriously degraded, with strong pixellation. This applies not just to the text in the editor, but throughout: menus, icons, everywhere.

Interestingly, I had previously installed jEdit 5.0.0 via the Java installer, and the graphics worked perfectly. I just wanted to have it installed as a Mac application, so I re-installed.

I have tried upgrading Java from 1.6.0 to 1.7.3, but that did not seem to make a difference.

I will be grateful for any suggestions. I am still new to Mac OS, so there may be some simple setting to change that will make all the difference.
