Hey guys!

What about macOS and Retina support for smooth GUI/ UI in Bitwig? On my iMac 5K I need to use 1080p resolution to work with Bitwig 2.2.3 or 2.3 Beta2 no matter. Using Ableton 10 and Logic Pro X on default iMac (2560x1440) resolution fine but not for Bitwig.

What you mean "you need to use 1080p"?

I think Bitwig has one of the best - if not THE best - support for high-DPI screens. Maybe just right-click on Bitwig's top bar and adjust scaling and/or screen profile (probably to "Large Screen")?

Do you have an iMac 27" 5k and tested this? If not please do not say this any more :)

Btw for now REAL BEST hidpi support have only Ableton Live 10 and Logic Pro 10.4

No, I don't but a lot of people have and I've not heard that complaint yet. What is exactly the problem? Why you have to use at 1080p? Why can't you use it at native resolution? Have you at all checked the options I've mentioned?

BTW, I can see that retina support was added in v1.2

I have purchased this GREAT little app and set to the same resolution as default 1440p but non-retina mode and all works smoothly now

On both my displays

Give thanks! That helped! But why the developers themselves don't solve this problem (((

They don’t have an iMac 27’ retina to check it themselves I think :D
