On Mac computer with Retina display low resolution is mixed with high resolution.

Half of menu buttons are low-res, half are high-res.

On canvas, selected object is high-res, other objects are low-res. Text labels are low-res.

When toolbar icons are not in high-resolution, that means that I do not have the right icon in better resolution. Please feel free to find (or make) some that I can use. For a full set, I need 22x22, 44x44, 32x32, and 64x64 pixels, or SVG or Ipe vector format that I can then render at the right size.

Thanks for reporting the problem with objects in low resolution. This worked correctly in Ipe 7.2.7, and I didn't change any of the code of the Cocoa canvas, so I suspect it may be a bug in the Cairo library.
Let me check if going back to an old Cairo version fixes it.

i've decided to use Cairo differently, and this seems to work around the problem.

I would be happy to try and design SVG icons for Ipe's drawing tools, based on KDE's Breeze icon set, if you like those.

(I'm quite busy at the moment, though, so it will take some time.)

That would be wonderful.

There is no hurry, we have been living with these icons for a long time.

It was pointed out to me that the current icons are hard to see in OSX dark mode and on the touch bar. So when redesigning them, one could try to improve this (or have a separate set for dark mode/touch bar).

Attaching my image of the poor visibility of current snapping buttons in Mac OS touchbar.
