OSX: Custom markers are not placed where the user clicks

Bug Description

Using: 15" MacBook Pro from 215 with Retina display.
OS: OSX 10.10.5

Example of issue: If I click the very center of the screen to place a custom marker, the marker is placed in the center of the 2nd quadrant of the screen (Reference: http://images.slideplayer.com/16/4951540/slides/slide_2.jpg ). If I click the very bottom right of the screen, the marker is placed at the origin (center of screen). Could this be the result of some assumption that my screen is 1400x900px like previous MacBook Pro models (without retina display). Retina displays have 2800x1800 dislpays, so perhaps this is the cause.

Please check Pointer coordinates plugin also.

Markers are a rather new feature, and none of the 3 currently active of us have a Mac with Retina display or other HiDPI device. HiDPI display issues can only be tackled by somebody having a HiDPI display. We 3 don't have one. You deal with markers already and have a HiDPI screen, maybe you can add a fix also here? There were some additions/adjustments for HiDPI/Retina/4k, but Alex knows more where in the code they may be. Fixes for the markers will likely be similar.
