According to plans, QGIS 3.0 should support HiDPI displays. However current master 2.99 doesn't support Retina od MacOS on canvas. Icons and menu text is OK, byt all graphic and text on map canvas and on print composer is still low resolution. Please see attached screenshot. Icons are nice but points on map are very pixelated.

3.2 is here, all the interface is retina ready but the map is not. I’m seeing other OS screenshot with hidpi QGIS. Anyone know why it doesn’ t work on the mac?

Hi Denis,

I noticed you updated the category. Do you have any news about this non-retina situation?

#7 Updated by Denis Rouzaud 4 days ago

I had a quick look today nothing clear yet.
But...I compared result with rendering on linux and this is quite similar.

left mac, right linux.
do you have similar results?

#8 Updated by Ugo Santana 4 days ago

Yes Denis, the same thing. I don't have linux to test here, but I saw some Windows interface posted online and it is really hidpi.

On the mac, the overall interface is perfectly high resolution, but the map canvas is not. I'm uploading an image showing the difference in resolution from icons to the map canvas. Also, the icons of each cathegory on the sidebar are low resolution. This screenshot is from QGIS 3.2.2.
