Hey there!

 

I have succesfully installed Arcgis 10.2.2 on my MacBook Pro 13 inch Retina (newest Version, with Yosemite) using Bootcamp on Windows 8 Pro 64 Bit.

 

Although ArcGIS was easily installed and runs ok, I get a very low resolution compared to other programs I open. That means that everything in ArcMap or ArcCatalog appears extremely big and is close to unusable. As well, when I open "File" "Edit" "View"  and so on e.g. in ArcMap, it all seems to be out of place...

Has anybody experienced something similar or knows how to adapt the resolution of the Retina display, to work properly with windows 8 and ArcGIS?
I was actually planning to connect the MacBook to my SAMSUNG Screen (26inch), however it has a max resolution of 1920x1080 which makes matters even worse...

 

I would apreciate any help, as I really have to be able to work with ArcGIS for university!

 

Regards,

 

Malte
