I recently discovered on a high dpi display (Retina-Display) enabled 13’’ notebook that the latest release of Bio7 for MacOSX is not displayed in high dpi but in a lower resolution which makes text and icons blurry (scaled) and unnecessary strains the eyes when editing R scripts with the R editor.
So I uploaded a new, fixed version for MacOSX.
However, to fix an already downloaded version of Bio7 you have to open open the ‘/Bio7.app/Contents/Info.plist’ file with a text editor (right-click on Bio7.app, execute ‘Show Package Contents’ and open ‘/Contents/Info.plist’) and add the following lines before the tag:
In addition to update the Info.plist file for the Operating System you have to open the Terminal (in ‘Applications/Utilities’) and execute the following command (default install directory – shell command is one line!):
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Support/lsregister -v -f /Applications/Bio7.app
Here some screenshots from before and after the fix was applied on a Retina-Display (zoom in for details):
An updated version with the fix already applied can be downloaded here
