Why UI so slow & glitchy on 5k Retina? Zooming its pain, more than 1 track in arrange it pain, full screen mode painful too. How we can use new tools, devices, if we can't work with GUI? Over two years I send it to support/bug report and nothing!

It should not be slow or glitchy if you don't max out the cpu. Did you check if your computer gets clocked down due to heat issues using the Intel power gadget? https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-power-gadget-20

It should but is it. I have iMac Late 2015 5K and its have no drop down powerful like a new MacBooks. All system works in normal mode and temperature, in my room 25 degrees in celsius. I have installed last versions of Logic Pro X and Ableton Live 10 and it works smoother and faster than Bitwig in same mode. I do not change any display settings, all using in default mode.

In 'Intel Power Gadget' system temperature is 55-60 C.

P.S. when I resize Bitwig windows to minimum all works faster than in Logic Pro and Ableton but I do not see anything in arrange window because minimum size of Bitwig window. See screenshot please: https://imgur.com/a/SJZ71Z4

Can you send us a screenshot while the UI is slow and glitchy with the Intel Power Gadget open in front of it? Also a screenshot of your display preferences of OSX would be interesting.

  1. Maximum windows size - glitchy UI https://i.imgur.com/qiscPCx.png

  2. Minimum window size - smoother UI https://i.imgur.com/MYkSAvQ.jpg

At last I bought thunderbolt->hdmi cable and connect my 1080p second display (DELL) and guess what... right! On the second 1080p display Bitwig works brilliant! But if I drag Bitwig back to my iMac display all works terrible again.
