If your diopter adjustment is off, your eye will not be able to focus on the focusing screen. That will make the focusing screen look blurry, even if the subject is in focus. It's still possible to manually focus with an incorrect diopter setting by moving the focusing ring until things look as good as possible - it's just harder because your own eyes aren't focused correctly.

that i fully understand of course. but the question is - can the reverse apply (as would appear to be the case given some of the replies to the OP)? in other words, if the subject is not in focus can an incorrect diopter setting make it appear to be in focus? with an ordinary viewfinder screen, i can't see how that is possible, but ......
i know what i know, which is a fraction of what i don't
