Is there a way to lunch individual apps in HiDPI mode? I would like to set my MacBook Pro Retina to full 1:1 pixel resolution with SwitchResX/SetResX, and then on a case-by-case basis either use the larger button & font settings or launch the app in HiDPI mode to allow me to allocate the pixels where they're most useful
