Hello, I installed SolidWorks 2012-2013 on Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 64-bit on my MacBook Pro Retina Display 15". I have noticed the following strange behavior of font display.
In SW_frontproblem1, the lower half of the letters are not displayed. Looks like the right of the numbers are not displayed correctly as well.
In SW_frontproblem2, Coinicident0 in Existing Relations (on the top left) and "Custom" on the bottom right are not displayed correctly.
In SW_frontproblem3, the lower half of the dimensions are not displayed.
In SW_frontproblem4, the lower half of the icons are not displayed.
Anybody knows what is going on and how to fix these problems? Thanks.
P.S. Don't know if it has anything to do with DPI. On this machine, I need to set the custom text size (DPI) to 200% to read the letters clearly. The resolution is 2880x1800 (recommended).
The issue is SOLIDWORKS does not handle high resolution screens very well yet, especially 150 or 200% DPI scaling.
