Retina Display is Why I Wanted a Mac in the First Place

Mar 10, 2018

Please share your experience.

I've been using Snipping Tool on my Windows laptop for my screen shots; they become fuzzy if I enlarge them.  The best alternative I could find online is to use a MacBook with retina display. I tested it out by creating a quick SL2 project comparing the screen shots side by side (using my work laptop and my personal MacBook for screen shots). The results: nearly identical as-is, but when blown up, the retina display was the "clear" winner.

So, at work I'm switching to a MacBook. Windows and Parallel, the whole package. It should be ready this week.

And I am reading suggestions to turn off the retina display when using Storyline. Gah!!

I'm interested in how others have handled this. Please share!

Hi Bridget,

You may want to look at the best practices outlined here.

Personally, I use a MacBook Pro, with VMWare, and although I'm not taking a lot of screenshots, I find that my display looks great. 

Also, as Phil mentioned Storyline 3 and Storyline 360 work better with high-resolution monitors, and if you'd like you can start a trial of Articulate 360 here, or get started with Storyline 3 here.
