      Description

      Java applications do not automatically support rendering on scaled high-resolution displays such as Apple Retina, and in Jalview's case, the alignment display is appears to be at a lower resolution than the the surrounding UI elements (which are provided by the native windowing platform on OSX).

      From random googling (http://www.nothome.com/2015/07/subpixel-font-rendering-with-netbeans.html) - there look to be a few issues with supporting high-resolution rendering - either arising from graphics card performance or simply coping with the additional processing overhead with the additional pixel area.
