    Blurry text in UI

    Hi guys,

    just instaled and entered AMC 8.3.0. into my my macbook. Text inside bins and topic-fonts ("Bins, Volumes, Settings..") are badly blurry. Same with MC loading window, white text is distorted. Is this becouse MC can't handle retina, as some posts suggested? Font softening in the setup dosn't do the trick. The font that is on when I open MC is Apple emoji. But if I change the font from the menu to different, it keeps the problem. Some submenus come out sharp thou, like presets and edit timebase in format menu. Other graphs like buttons are sharp also.

    Does anyone know way around to help MC to settle into it's new home?

    :)

    Yes, it's becouse my macbook pro 2014 has too big screen resolution (2880x1800) for my media composer version, and some fonts looks bad becouse of it. Sure they'll fix it in the future, if not already.

    Has this Mac screen resolution problem been fixed?
    I am curious, since this thread is a year old, and I have not upgraded my Media Composer since version 8.4.

    But I am a little annoyed by those fuzzy fonts.

    I just got a new retina Macbook Pro, and have Media Composer 8.8 installed. It all looks fine to me.

    I have the display settings set to 'More Space'/'Looks like 1920x1200'
