I have a new rMBP 13" and I have it connected to a Dell 27" monitor with a Default resolution of 2560x1440. The problem is when I use only the external it defaults to 2560x1440 and everything is too small, especially in photoshop and other programs. Now when I used mirrored mode it actually scales the display very nicely and the 27" monitor is usable again(without any loss of image quality), but when I close the lid, it goes back to native 2560x1440. So since I don't know OS X like the back of my hand yet, how can I get OS X to use it's scaled features on my external dell display without having to leave my lid open on my laptop and use both displays. I'm sure it's a easy fix. Thanks guys and girls.
