Unfortunately, it is so. My wife has both versions and Lyx on Retina is not
a useless application, but a very difficult one to work with.

My experience is quite different (though of course YMMV). There is no 
doubt that the screen fonts in LyX ≤2.1.2 look much better on a 
non-Retina display when examined close up; on a rMBP, the edges of font 
characters and most icons are blurred and pixelated. But I find that, 
with the right choice of screen fonts (notably, in my case, Georgia for 
the main text font), if I am working at a comfortable distance from the 
screen (including with the laptop in my lap), the blurred/pixelated 
edges of the fonts are not noticeable. (For the record, my (corrected) 
vision is very good.)


That said, there is little doubt that the LyX user experience on the 
rMBP will be much better still when the version with Retina support 
comes out, and I eagerly await it. (IIRC Stephan thinks that might be 
around Christmas.)


Stephan (or anyone), quick question: Is there any reason to think screen 
fonts in LyX 2.1.2 will look appreciably better or worse on a new 
5k-Retina iMac than on a rMBP?

Ah, yes, that could be (subject of the thread notwithstanding). Typing 
is a bit laggy on a rMBP (assuming that's the sort of thing you have in 
mind by speed). Since I mostly use LyX for writing papers and I tend 
to write rather haltingly, the lag is not usually noticeable. But if I

I have been following this thread (and past related ones)  with great interest 
as I will be forced to upgrade to a retina Mac in the next 6 months or so.
Could someone post some screen shots that show the on-screen quality on a

How is the image quality on a non-retina external display hooked up to a retina

Sounds like typing responsiveness is also an issue as well.

Re: lyx on Mac - blurred fonts

2014-10-20 Thread Paola Manzini
Hi all, I do have a macbook pro with retina display running Mavericks, 
and I never noticed any lags, nor does the blurriness' bother me to the 
point of not being able to work on it.


I also have a windows machine with high resolution display, and on that 
one LyX is unusable, the icons are just too tiny. On the MPBr yes the 
font is not neat, but I can sure work on it. Anyhow, as this may very 
well be a matter of taste, here is a link to little video of how LyX 
looks on my machine while I type, so you can judge for yourself:

 Chris, frankly, I wasn't sure I understood Jerry's comment.
 Perhaps he's talking about speed and not about crisp fonts.


 Ah, yes, that could be (subject of the thread notwithstanding). Typing is
 a bit laggy on a rMBP (assuming that's the sort of thing you have in mind
 by speed). Since I mostly use LyX for writing papers and I tend to write
 rather haltingly, the lag is not usually noticeable. But if I were using it
 for tasks where I wanted to type full speed, especially if I were a really
 fast typist, I can see that lag could be pretty annoying.

Re: lyx on Mac - blurred fonts

2014-10-20 Thread Paola Manzini
Hi all, I do have a macbook pro with retina display running Mavericks, 
and I never noticed any lags, nor does the blurriness' bother me to the 
point of not being able to work on it.


I also have a windows machine with high resolution display, and on that 
one LyX is unusable, the icons are just too tiny. On the MPBr yes the 
font is not neat, but I can sure work on it. Anyhow, as this may very 
well be a matter of taste, here is a link to little video of how LyX 
looks on my machine while I type, so you can judge for yourself:

 Hi Tino,

 you're using a display with very high resolution, the so called
 Retina-display.
 LyX isn't ready to display the contents of the work area and the
 icons on
 a Mac with Retina display.  So, no, there is no option to enable
 the display
 with full screen resolution on your Mac.  You have to wait for a
 new version
 of LyX.

Retina-support is somewhat special because it's not simply doubling
the display resolution. There is a compatibility layer to enable it
for applications with retina support only. There are some reasons for
this.

 Hi all,
 
 I just installed lyx 2.1.2 on OSX 10.9.5, using MacTeX in background. 
 
 I’m a little bit confused because the font in the editor area and also the 
 icons at the toolbar are very blurred. Are there any options I have to change 
 to get antialiased fonts and clear icons?
 
 Thanks a lot! - Tino


Hi Tino,

you're using a display with very high resolution, the so called Retina-display.
LyX isn't ready to display the contents of the work area and the icons on
a Mac with Retina display.  So, no, there is no option to enable the display
with full screen resolution on your Mac.  You have to wait for a new version
of LyX.
