I've recently bought a new desktop iMac and I'm transfering my old software. I don't want to re-purchase inDesign so I've uploaded my old version Indesign CS6 (it does everything I want it to) and the image quality is worse than it was on my old screen. Is there a way to improve this without buying the software again?

No. You now have a high resolution screen – your old software needs to be upgraded to match your new system.

Thanks for your advice, thats a shame. It feels worse than it used to on a worse screen which is strange. I've just increased the screen performance in settings and it is better but still pixelated

I'm amazed it even works on a new Mac.

If your work is mission critical, you should upgrade to InDesign 2019/2020 (or the Creative Cloud Suite).
