Good to know it isn't just me Catherine.
I've just installed FTM2014 under Win7 on my new macbookpro under parallels 9, it is exactly as you described, unusable.
I've already tweaked the settings for my main genie program and don't particularly wish to have to alter visibility settings between two programs just to get acceptable output for FTM !!
Ironically, FTM2014 was the tipping point for the upgrade to new macbookpro as I'd run out of space on my old one and either had to repartition to allocate more space to the C: drive to instal it, or upgrade the machine.
FTM2012 ran fine under VMWareFusion / Win7 on my older non retina macbookpro but as I can't instal any more programs on the older machine I cannot compare behaviour of FTM 2014 under retina display/parallels/mavericks vs VMWareFusion 10.6.8 OS.
