Hi all,

I'd appreciate if IOS X users among you can suggest me a solution for the low resolution of the Trades Studio 2015 interface running under W7 and Parallels Desktop 10 in MacBook Pro.

TIA

No real solution, I'm afraid Aug 4, 2015

I've downloaded Studio 2015, but I've not installed it yet. In Studio 2014 the resolution is indeed a problem, at some points. Not on a MacBook Pro but on an iMac Retina. From your posting I understand that the resolution issue still exists in Studio 2015.

I'm afraid that this cannot be fixed a the moment. The more users complain here (and in SDL's ticket system), the more likely it is that they'll consider us Mac users in future releases.

For the time being I've migrated my Parallels VM to VMware Fusion (a painless process), where I find support for Studio (running under Win 8.1) much better.

I have the feeling that SDL likes Macs, but they are just forgetting us:

Thank you Joakim for you suggestions.
I followed the steps and have now a slightly improved Trades Studio interface on my McBook Pro Retina.

Same issues on PCs Mar 16, 2016

I meet the same resolution problems with Studio 2014 on my PC laptop displaying a 2880 x 1620 resolution, under Windows 8 as well as Windows 10. Of course, also with Multiterm. Just unconceivable from the leader on the market !
Have a nice day.

Hi Definition screen resolution. Mar 17, 2016

Hi everyone.

We at SDL are indeed aware of the issue surrounding High Resolution screens and are looking at solutions for this.

SDL Studio was designed for optimal performance on screens with a standard resolution of 1280x1024 (which is explained on our website-System Requirements!).
However in recent months the sale of Hi Res screens has shot up as this new technology has come down in price-
meaning that as many as 2/3 times the number of pixels are being squeezed into the same physical size of screen.

Now however the pixels have been 'squeezed' rendering becomes problematic as obviously the smaller the pixel the smaller the 'test image'.
This is of course fantastic for video and gaming-
but not so optimal for text programs as the pixel size was predefined for optimal clarity.

There are a number of workarounds that you can try-

We apologise for the inconvenience-
but will let you all know just as soon as we have a long term resolution no pun intendedicon_smile.gif.

Good news that the SDL developers will look into this!

About the use of hi-res screens for text programs:

My CAT tools runs at my 5K iMac, at the left-hand side I have a secondary screen (Apple Thunderbolt) with 'normal' resolution, for some glossaries, the PDF with the source, the constantly updated project statistics, some integrated dictionaries (van Dale etc.), all running in normal resolution.

All I can say is, that I'm glad that my main panes (the GUI of my CAT tool) is on the hi-res screen in crispy fonts.

Not a luxurious feature for me nowadays, but a real necessity for fun in translating.
