Hi
When I hook up my macbook pro retina to my external monitor, the pdf shown by the internal pdf-viewer is pixelated. When I drag texstudio to the retina screen everything is very crisp. I didn't have this problem on my non retina macbook.
Is there a solution for this problem?

    not sure that i understand the problem.
    the resoultion of the external monitor is less than the internal one, so any text can't be as sharp.
    the same happens with any other mac application ...Frodo frodo12@users.sf.net hat geschrieben:[bugs:#853] PDF pixelated on external monitor

    Thank you for your reply. To illustrate what I mean, I have attached two screen shots of how the pdf looks like when using the internal pdf viewer and the Skim pdf-viewer. Both are from my my external monitor. As you can see the document is very blurry and not displayed correct when viewed by the internal pdf viewer. When I drag the Texstudio window to the retina screen everything is sharp however.
    Is there a solution for this problem?

    probably there is no solution.

    txs renders pdfs at double resolution when it detects a retina mac.
    On normal screen that is automatically scaled down, thus reducing sharpness.
    Since Qt does not offer a way to handle the screen resolution completely, there is no (known) way of avoiding this issue ...

    use qt5 information on pixel ratio.
    Gives only correct info when the window is completely on one or the other monitor.
    so fixed in repository (default)
