    On my 15" Retina MBP I use the setting in between Best for display and More Space. Coming from a 17" MBP there just simply was not enough screen real estate. I don't find it affects my designs at all, whether I'm working on my Cinema Display or MBP, though I do work mostly on mobile where I'm zoomed in a lot of the time.

      I suppose that is a middle ground option I could trial. I'm just so used to using the "More Space" option and having so much real estate available. I'm struggling to realise just how designers actually use the default "Best for display" option. With mobile I suppose it isn't that bad, but when it comes to actual web interfaces, that's when I find it the most difficult, not being able to see the entire canvas and constantly having to zoom in/out.
