Keep in mind that FM Go will not allow you to zoom out so far that the current layout less-than-fills the screen. You can zoom in, but not out to make things super-small beyond the full layout size.

So, what will the user of the iPad do?
i suppose we'll probably hear soon if FM Go presents special problems, but the
general expectation is that all current iPad apps will be presented at full
screen; in almost all apps (Kindle being the known exception) text is
automatically rendered at the same size but at the new resolution; i believe
bitmap screen elements will be scaled, so they'll display with the same
resolution as on iPad 1 & 2, but they may still seem coarse with respect to
other elements of the UI
Due to the new MacBook Pro I am pushing this thread again.
I read, that crossplatform programs like Photoshop or Google Chrome and Firefox are not using Cocoa for text rendering and therefor have problems with the Retina display, i.e. the text is not sharp. This doesn´t happen to Cocoa text API using Apps.
How about FileMaker ? Is FileMaker 12 using Cocoa for text ? How do normal FileMaker layouts (old style and made with the CSS designs of FM12) look like on the Retina display ?
I would think that FM12 will be fine - they probably knew what was coming and a good explanation for the change the from px to pt
The only Pronlem I have had so far is the File Maker splash screen ie blown up and looks wierd when starting File Maker Pro 12 on a MacBook Pro 15" With Retina Display.
