I am not sure what changed in 0.12 but on MacOS the font looks very blurry. 0.11 looks fine. I took a screenshot to compare. I checked the font which is exactly the same.

    I noticed this too on my Mojave 4k monitor. When I rebuilt from master locally, the blurriness went away. It looks like an issue with the release binary, maybe a rebuild will fix it?

    Hi all, I have also compiled the binary using the instructions from https://bitbucket.org/heldercorreia/speedcrunch/wiki/BuildingOSXPackage
    The blurry font are fixed, but some icons are low-dpi (like the formula book “x”).

    Anyway, it is a time-consuming process so I have set up a github repo so if anyone needs, there is the compiled version. Highly inspired by @Tey (https://github.com/Tey/speedcrunch-nightlies):

    Thanks a lot, @Glorymar Garcia !

    @Helder Correia , @Samuel Gaist : Any update on fixing this in the official repo?

    One could fix that issue without recompiling with few simple steps:

    1. Open Applications folder and select SpeedCrunch.app
    2. Open context menu on SpeedCrunch.app and select Show Package Contents
    3. Open file Contents/Info.plist in any text editor, like TextEdit.app which is bundled with macOS
    4. Add following text right above </dict>:

      <key>NSHighResolutionCapable</key> <string>True</string>

    Finally you’ll need to refresh system’s cache: you could either restart the macOS, or copy SpeedCrunch.app from Application folder into another and then copy it back.

    P.S. After all these manipulations you should get Info.plist like this:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
    <plist version="1.0">

        <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key>
