forgot to include the Pd-list on my reply:

I’ve only seen it on my (very complex) performance setup, which I can’t very well use as a test case. I will try to find a simpler example, though it’s possible that my complex performance patches are stressing the graphics somehow.

If I can do that with a (vanilla, I assume) simple patch, I’ll try your demo build.

Thanks, Dan.

Can you compare the same patch with my demo build of Pd 0.46 with retina screen support: Pd-0.46-0-64bit-retina.app.zip<http://docs.danomatika.com/Pd-0.46-0-64bit-retina.app.zip>

Subject: [PD] Mac Retina display - graphics glitching?

Upon getting a new 13” Retina Macbook, I have started to notice glitching in the PD UI. I thought this might signal a need to upgrade to Pd-extended 0.43.4, so I did, but this did not fix the glitching. Usually, the glitching manifests as a flickering GUI slider, but sometimes, a whole squarish section of the screen flickers briefly.

It’s not disabling, but it’s very distracting to see the screen flashing out of the corner of my eye.


MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014)
Pd Version: 0.43.4-extended
Tcl Version: 8.5.11

I haven’t searched the bugs list yet; I’m just wondering if anybody else has noticed this?
