I am using TeXworks as the LaTeX editor on my new MacBook Pro with Retina Display.

The interfaces are super blur. It seems that TeXworks does not support the retina resolution. See below.

The MacTeX.pkg was downloaded from MacTeX TUG today. Hence, I think it is the latest version.

How may I fix it?

You can use Retinizer:

Retinizer is a small app I wrote that allows apps that aren’t retina ready and are displayed pixelated at 1x to display their UI widgets at 2x. That way, only their custom images will look bad and not the whole app.

Tested, and works great:

Before: @1x

After: @2x


You can also use TexShop, which also comes in the bundle. It looks quite good on a retina display and is quite similar to TexWorks otherwise:
