Blurry text on Mac

Do you have a typical platform dependent issue you're battling with ? Ask it here. Make sure you mention your platform, compiler, and wxWidgets version.

Blurry text on Mac

Post by asztandi » Tue Mar 24, 2020 2:41 am

Hello!

My team and I are working on a stand alone desktop application for which we use wxwidgets. On Windows and on Linux the texts in all controls look good, they are clear and sharp as expected. On Mac, specifically Catalina but I think it happened even with Mojave, the texts in all the controls except the menu items look blurry. We are using wxWidgets 3.1.3 version and the computers that I am seeing this issue on have retina displays.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. If you could point me in a direction where I might find the solution.
Thank you!

Hi,
Are you able to reproduce it in the {minimal, widgets} sample?

Thank you.

Hello,
Thank you for you quick reply.
We have some minimal demo apps that use wxWidgets and I could not reproduce it there. That's good to know, it means the setting/error is somewhere in our code base.
Thank you for you help.
