MacOS BigSur - M1 support: works great, but it would be really helpful to have the "looks like 2560x1440" option available for 4K resolution
use now a DisplayLink capable hub to use an 2nd external monitor on a M1 MacBook..
works great, but on that screen I can only choose between "Looks like 1920x1080" or the full 4K resolution - which is not really good to read on that monitor.....
Would be really great, if the "Looks like 2560x1440" resolution (scaling of UI) would be supported in one of the following updates.....
Would be great to have HiDPI support for all display resolutions the M1 Macs support for the 1st external monitor
DisplayLink Manager 1.5 Beta adds 2 new modes when not already advertised as supported by UHD/4K monitors themselves: 2560×1440 and 3008×1692.

I to have this issue, it appears to be M1 related as an older 2013 15" Macbook Pro and 2019 16" Macbook Pro both are able to do HiDPI 2560x1440 through the same 4k monitors, Displaylink hardware and software on Big Sur.
Please add support for 1440p on 4K displays. This is the most common fall back resolution for those who need more screen real estate but can't deal with how small things are when their displays are set to native 4K.
Indeed, it's pretty silly that I can do this my connecting my laptop directly to the monitor, but with a DL device in between I'm limited to 1080p (pixel doubled) or 4k native.
Allow 4k retina resolution scaled as 2560 x 1440p on an external 4k display, with MacOS
