My wife has a 24-inch iMac, Late 2006 model. Until recently, Displays gave an option for several screen sizes — like Goldilocks’ porridge, one was too big (type too small for her to read), one was too small (type too big), and one just right.
Recently — I think after the last software update (she’s running Lion 10.7.4) the good one disappeared. She now has only two choices for resolution — 1920 x 1200 (which makes the type too small for her to conveniently read) and 960 x 600 (which makes everything much too big).
Anyone have any ideas about how to get the good resolution back? There should be more choices than this ...
I'm not sure about the technical term "florfed" ... ... This problem has been raised in other posts on the forum. The problem has been opened with Apple and I would bet that the next update to 10.7.5 will fix this problem. However, I do reserve the right to be wrong. I find that prudent.
