Cura 4.10.0 Text is garbled in some screens

When I rotate a model on the build plate the numbers (for degrees of rotation) display all garbled and unreadable. I noticed the same thing in the preferences panel (screenshot attached) after I clicked around in the panel a bit). Is there anyway to reset how this text is displayed or is it a bug?

 

MacBook Pro M1

Cura 4.10.0

 

Thanks,

Karla

    Hi Karla

     

    The problem is the M1 Chip of your device. Cura is currently not compatible 100% with the M1. I have the same issue on a MacBook and iMac both M1. The older Intel Macs are working fine.

     

    As far as I understood, the root cause it not Cura itself but a library which is itself not ready for M1. And updating to the last version would break compatibility with older Mac OS versions.

     

    But the developers are aware of the issue and I am sure they find a solution.

    You are welcome and you are not alone. I already sit on the bench waiting, so take a seat, there is enough space 🙂

    I had the same problem. Specifically the Post Processing Plugin list was completely unreadable. I found a workaround:

     

    1. Close Cura

    2. Right click or control click Cura in your Applications folder

    3. Choose "Get Info"

    4. Turn on "Open in Low Resolution"

    5. Open Cura - fonts should be rendering correctly now

     

    The main downside of this workaround is that, if you're on a retina display, Cura will appear slightly blurry. At least it's workable though, I was missing key functionality previously.
