Short description of error
The Timeline numbers on a Retina disaply are too cramped together. I guess the logic by which it switches from 5 steps to 10 steps etc to have more space between the numbers doesn't take High DPI / Retina into account

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Here's the default startup on a MacBookPro with Retina Display the timeline with Blender running on a regular display.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) triaged this task as Confirmed, High priority.

I guess the Minimum Grid Spacing doesn't take UI scale into account?

hm the unit says "px", so I used it as pixels. I can also just multiply it with the UI scale, yes.

@Jacques Lucke (JacquesLucke) Thanks for fixing. I think any item using pixels should be multiplied by the UI scale.

Sometimes this unit is referred to as pt, or points, which is separate from pixels. But that is a discussion for another day.
