These are two different features, rack/device zooming and application zoom. Application zooming was done first (has been requested for YEARS!), hopefully device zooming will be relatively quick to follow.
With respect, and you're not incorrect, as such, but that sure sounds dangerously close to a revisionism of the types of requests I've seen over the years, in order to attempt to justify to yourself the way it's been implemented now, when there's a very strong argument that's not what a majority of people have wanted the past six years at least, even just in a cursory search of this very forum. Now, I'm not party to whatever user stats and direct emails RS have, of course. But I can be pretty sure of one thing.
No-one, but no-one, including yourself, asked for enlarged, blurry text, and a comically, farcically engorged transport bar.
Serious, genuine question.
In what way is this
better than this?
Because that is so obviously wrong it should not have even made it to a beta, let alone to paying users beta testers
Reason+ Subscribers. You say "Application zooming has been done first", but it demonstrably hasn't! They've done part
of it. Come on, Giles.
Every time someone on the forum says — or as you're doing, even inadvently, implies, especially given your status a respectable tech expert — language like "This is great!" or in "has been done" enables RS to get away with not fixing or finishing work in a product that most of us do actually pay for.
The fact is when you defend the indefensible, the indefensible eventually becomes acceptable.
Fantastic, the bitmaps are bigger, and sharper for people who need them bigger. I love it. That's good, for sure. However, making the fonts shit is not good. So the net benefit to what they've released is, by and large, zero. It is no better: they've merely shifted the rendering issues into a different place. It's the programming equivalent of crapping on the floor and sweeping it under a rug with your slippers.
If this display render issue is fixed before Reason 12.1 gets released, brilliant, my cynicism will have been entirely misplaced, I'll take it all back and apologise right here in this thread: it just was a bug, and it took a little while longer to work through than they expected. However, I guarantee it's been known about for some time maybe months, probably including yourself as I believe you're a Test Pilot who gets these Upgrades for Free. But if it's not fixed by September, and remember, it's already actually live in a paid environment to Paying Beta Tester
Reason+ Subscribers, it's intentional. That is, they had no intention of ensuring it looks correct for launch.
And at that point, the marketing should read "Reason HD: It's like staring at a Vaseline-smeared monitor through cataracts."
