On a Retina MacBook Pro some Java applications (such as IDEA 11.1.3 that is supposed to support it) won't run in HiDPI mode. When I got to "Get Info" on the app, I can see that the "Open in Low Resolution" checkbox is checked and disabled. Is there a way to change this? I have Java 1.6.0_37 installed.
It doesn't sound like the application actually supports HiDPI mode. Here's a tutorial for modifying Microsoft Word's application package so it will support HiDPI Mode: https://i.stack.imgur.com/aRu1J.jpg. Perhaps it would work for this application as well.
Summary of the link:
Make a backup copy of the application
Open the application folder, then right click the app and choose "Show Package Contents"
Toward the bottom of the file, just before
</dict>, add the following lines:
Move the app package out of the applications folder. Then move it back in.
- The application may now allow a hacked, possibly glitchy retina mode.
