(I'm CC'ing openjfx-dev@ since this is a JavaFX topic)

I think you might want to check out the following issue:


Currently JavaFX isn't HiDPI-aware, and as such this is impossible to 
turn automatic scaling off (unless there's a hack in OS X for this.)

PS. If you're interested in support for this feature in JDK as well, 
here's a bug to watch: http://bugs.sun.com/view_bug.do?bug_id=8000629
