Retina Displays with Mac OS X and FileMaker Pro/Advanced 14

Background —


I recently updated to a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) from a MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011). My FileMaker Pro Advanced 14 databases were designed to fit the MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011) with no scrolling, so 1440 by 900 (native), unless it was a printed report.


Confusion —


While the screen size on the MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) is 2880 x 1800, FileMaker Pro Advanced 14 says it is 1440 x 900 (half the size of the Retina display dimensions). No scrolling was required before, but now is, even though the display is "technically" larger. What am I missing? Do I need to recreate or adjust all of my layouts or is there a simpler method?
