    I recently switched to a MacBook Pro with retina display, and find FreeMind very fuzzy. I checked here:

    and it seems Java 1.7 has this problem. I looked into the FreeMind package contents and see it comes bundled with a 1.7 JRE. Is there a setting somehow to redirect it to the 1.6 JRE in System folder? Will it even work with 1.6?

    Thanks
    Tim

    Just bumping this as from previous experience I know FreeMind is a great app and I'd really like to use it, but with the fuzzy appearance on Retina display I can feel a headache developing just trying to focus on it.

    So, I'm wondering if there's a way to download FreeMind as a JAR or similar, so I can just run it from the command line with my JRE of choice, rather than the bundled JRE 1.7?
