Software makers usually fix these issues but it can take them some time. What you can do in the meantime is to download and install an older version of SwitchResX 4.11.1.

What's new in this version:

- Better support for M1 Macs
- Can now again set grey levels, display brightness
- Can now create custom *scaled* resolutions (for the internal display on MacBooks: only on macOS 11.3 and above), and only resolutions that are smaller than the native resolution
- As far as I know, HiDPI resolutions can only be activated on 4K external displays and MacBook's internal display, so SwitchResX cannot enable HiDPI on other displays
- Can also set the base of scaling (which solves an issue on Dell UPK2715K monitors with M1 Macs under macOS 11.2)
- Also correctly manages more than one display on M1 Macs (on v.4.11, all graphic cards were shown, even if no display was plugged, and even the TouchBar of a MacBookPro could be visible!).
- However this removed the ability to disable a display on the DTK. Who cares, the DTK has died some weeks ago
- The Display Product & Vendor IDs are now correctly reported again; as well as the Display Name (which isn't always visible after a wake from sleep)
- Solves some memory leaks in the SwitchResX Daemon, especially on M1 Macs
- Tries to report the correct timing parameters for all resolutions on M1 Macs - at least for the current resolution
- Corrects an issue where the Contextual Menu was not installed with 4.11 on macOS 10.14 and below (macOS 11 doesn't support it any more anyway)
- Corrects an issue where the current display mode wouldn't be shown as selected in a specific case (in details - when it ID was 0)
- Correctly sets the gray levels again if selected from the Menu
- Correctly matches two monitors from same vendor but with different product ID, as well as identical monitors with different serial numbers
- Solves an issue when opening the control panel would be unresponsive for a minute
- Solves an issue on macOS 10.15.7 with SIP enabled, where installing the helper tool wouldn't be possible after first run
- Solves an issue where a Display Set saving only display positions wouldn't remember its setting when the display would be removed
- Using SwitchResX Daemon with AppleScript, the refresh rate of a mode is now reported as a float, and billion of colours are also reported correctly
- Added the aspect ratio column in custom resolutions list
