During Engadget's coverage of this week's Apple developer conference, they say that the new MacBook Pro has a...
...15.4-inch display with a pixel density of 2880 x 1800. "That four times the number of pixels than the previous generation of MacBook Pro display. Now, applications do have to be updated to take advantage of this Retina display."
Those that have not been can be pixel-doubled, but they'll look a bit jank. [Apple senior vice-president of worldwide product marketing] Phil's [Schiller] listing off some third-parties that are cooking up some updates. Adobe's working in a new Photoshop. Autodesk has a new AutoCAD on the way, too.
What would Autodesk need to change in AutoCAD for Mac? If you have ever used it, then you know that the text in AutoCAD's palettes is tiny. Quadrupling the resolution makes the text twice as small, making it nearly impossible to read on a smallish 15" screen.
Autodesk likely is adding an option to increase the size of text and icons, just as it always has been in the Windows versions of AutoCAD.
