I'm wondering if anyone has encountered this, or has found a fix?

I had contacted support with this issue and ended up at a dead-end, with them saying that it might be fixed in a later version.

When using Wordfast Pro on my Macbook 12" all of the program font is pixelated with low resolution. You can see the differences between the system font and the Wordfast font in the screen capture images below.

Fixing this issue would make WF so much nicer to use on laptops!

Thanks for your help!

This has been reported before: Wordfast Pro 3 scales poorly on very high resolution displays, such as the "Retina" displays found on high-end Macs.

Have you tried Wordfast Pro 4? My laptop has a 2560x1440 display and WFP4 scales much better on it than WFP3 (talking about the Windows version, but I assume the Mac version would behave in a similar way).

WF 3 appears to be the latest version for Mac.

I'm hoping that WF 4 solves this issue.

Download it and give it a try. It can be used side-by-side with Wordfast Pro 3.

This may be too late.

Please search the web for retinizer. It can make WFP3 Mac retina-ready.
