Hi everyone!


after upgrading from Mountain Lion to Mavericks, the Preview app (Version 7.0) stops working in Retina resolution.


For instance, a 2500pix graphics now does not fit in the monitor (2880x1800 pix native resolution) when displayed at actual size, i.e. 1 image pixel per 1 screen pixel. It is rendered at twice as low resolution.


As with the previous os x mountain lion, in Mavericks too I am using "Best (Retina)" screen resolution mode in the Display Preferences.


Any idea how to resolve this?

actually, I belive this is some sort of bug of the Preview app.


Is there anyone else having the same issue? If yes, please reply to this


i have a macbook pro retina 15"

MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), OS X Mavericks (10.9), Preview app bug retina resolution
