I can use the commands in .xprofile to temporarily add a new modeline that the desktop settings app can see and allows me to select. It does not change the resolution and does not persist through a logout/login or a reboot. The modelines.txt file is the output from Raspbian. (2019-07-10-raspbian-buster)

This is a 4 GB PI 4.
