Font Scaling in QT5 and OBS

 If you like to use OBS and have high resolution displays (4k, 8k, etc.) you may run into known silliness with poor EDID support in X and in the monitors themselves with regard to size and DPI.  If you find  yourself getting teeny tiny fonts in the obs UI (or any other QT app) the fix is easy. Just add the following to your ~/.profile.


export QT_FONT_DPI=80

That's it.
