    Anyone got this to work succesfully?

    I managed to pull this off TO A DEGREE.
    https://comsysto.com/blog-post/force-hidpi-resolutions-for-dell-u2515h-monitor

    I can run it in a custom resolution 1140*855 (in that way, a virtual 4-pixel is roughly the same size as running the 15" 1920*1200.
    But no way can i make it run in 1024*768 (ipad native)

    also, there is no way to run it in portrait mode.

    I guess running it in one config is better than *nothing*, but still.

    If you press and hold "option" on your keyboard, and then click "Scaled", what will you see?

    Also, is there anything in "Rotation" for you to choose?

    I managed to pull off so portrait and landscape works in 2000*1500, but 1140*855 (2280*1710) still works only in landscape.
    2000*1500 is not native, but at least virtual pixel is as close to 1680*1050 of my main display as possible. (so thats something)

    holding option unfortunately just lists a bunch of useless resolutions, none of which are HiDPI. (doesnt matter in which rotation am I)

    I found this apps is useful to get HiDPI resolution (those x2 options in the Scale are the HiDPI options).

    http://resxtreme.com

    It also provide lots of non native resolutions. e.g. I am not using any 4k, 5k monitor. There is no native HiDPI resolution (in macOS) for me go beyond the native resolution. But This ResXtreme apps actually allow me to choose the following HiDPI resolution. Just double click the resolution you want, and the apps will do the rest for you. However, I am not sure what will happen if you rotate it.
