Storyline 3 and Retina Display in a VM
Apr 05, 2017
I just installed Storyline 3 into my Windows 10 VM (Parallels running on a Retina-display Mac) to see if the scaling issues had been fixed from version 2. If you aren't familiar with the problem, when the Parallels VM was set to "Best for Retina display" (which makes Windows look awesome), Storyline 2's interface was microscopic, because it wasn't scaling correctly. To fix it, you had to set the VM to "Scaled" which made Storyline's interface a usable size but made the overall graphics in the VM pixellated and awful.
So, curious to see what Storyline 3 was going to do, I installed the demo. The interface in SL3 is now readable while the VM is set to "Best for Retina display"; however, the interface of SL3 is scaled up and everything (text and UI elements) looks pixellated (but now only in SL3).
So, I'm wondering what the problem is here? Other applications (Microsoft Office, Adobe, etc.) running in the VM work just fine on the Retina display, and the interfaces and text are crisp and take full advantage of the high-res display. What's going on with Storyline? Thanks.
