Everything looks blurry on my mac with retina display. Is there any way to solve that or make the text sharper? Thanks.

Mathworks doesn't seem interested in solving this problem. It has been a documented issue since October 2013. You can hack in a new version of Java (like beta jdk8) but it might breaks other things (the complier stopped working).

None of these supposed answers actually solve the problem. You can either get blurry text by default or pixelated text with the "low resolution" option. Hacking in a new version of Java breaks other things. Mathworks needs to stop patting themselves on the back that the problem is fixed and actually update their version of Java--or go back to using OSX Java like before r2013a. I'm lucky I haven't needed to use MATLAB much recently because this issue is very disruptive.

It's fixed in R2014b, available now.

Well, sort of. If the text in the interface windows is finally ok in R2014b, the text in the graphics is as pixelated as ever. Actually, figures look far better with FontSmoothing set to 'off', which is rather paradoxical.

My best advice is to contact customer service. I've had this issue for a while as well and finally submitted a request a month or so ago. Mathworks called me and walked me through the fix.
That being said, I was hoping 2014a would fix the issue. It isn't just a Mathworks issue. But it would be great to see MW fix this problem.
