Bibleworks on MacBook Pro with Retina Display
I just made the switch to Mac, to a MacBook Pro with a Retina display. I'm wondering what people's experience with running BW9 is regarding the quality of the fonts? Some programs that aren't "optimized" for Retina displays still look pretty good, but others look incredibly grainy or pixelated. I know Logos looks nice and crisp (even Logos 4); Accordance even though built for Mac has a fuzzier pixelated look. How do the fonts in BW9 look? Any difference between running the native and in a virtual emulator?
I was running BW8 on my old laptop, just trying to decide if it's worth upgrading to BW9 at the moment. Thanks!
MacBook Pro (2013) 13" - Fonts Better with Font and Display Change
I just loaded the latest Mac BW 9 (9r3-28) on a new (late) 2013 MacBook Pro 13" (Dec 5, 2014).
In Tools->Options->Fonts, Changing bwgrkl to bwgrkn in the search and display windows, and Arial to Bitstream Vera Serif for both windows, improved the English and Greek nicely. I kept the default font sizes.
Then in SystemPreferences -> Displays, choose "Scaled," and select the 3rd of 4 options, i.e., just between "Best (Retina)" and "More Space."
This gives a better experience for me. Of course, the individual Reference texts vary, according to the fixed fonts in which they are coded.
More Space Option Makes Everything Smaller
