In order to test a Qt application I'm working on I need to run it with various DPI settings to see how it looks. I can change the DPI settings globally in a couple of ways (Appearance->Fonts or putting "Xft.dpi: NNN" in ~/.Xresources), but this is a pain.

Is there a simple way to do change the DPI setting only for a specific application instead of globally (affecting the entire desktop)?

The DPI is set within X (on a per monitor basis), and, I believe, not available to be set on an application basis. So, no.
