[Gimp-user] blurry images after scaling down

I'm down scaling some tif images.  These images are created with a
software for making diagrams and the like.  Geometric shapes and text
mostly.  When I open the tif in Gimp they are perfectly crisp.  When I
the image down in size, it becomes slightly blurry, even when opting
for the
"best" cubic algorithm.

I'm running into the same problem with both scale and rotate. What's really
strange is that I was working on a drawing using GIMP 2.8 until very recently.
When I was using 2.8 the amount of crispness that I lost when using the scale
and rotate functions was within acceptable limits, for example I could rotate a
particular line 4, 5 or maybe 6 times before the amount of blur became really
noticeable. Yesterday I upgraded to GIMP 2.10 and the problem is MUCH more
pronounced - even one rotation or just scaling down a small amount, say 10%,
causes everything to become really, really fuzzy. I've attached an image to

Did you ever find a solution?
