Understanding print quality settings

Print quality settings affect how light or dark the print is on the page and the style in which the
graphics are printed. You can also use the print quality settings to optimize the print quality for a
specific media type. See

Optimizing print quality for media types

for more information.

Understanding print quality settings 43

You can change the settings in the printer properties to accommodate the types of jobs you are
printing. The following settings are available depending on the printer driver you are using:

Best Quality (ProRes 1200): This prints at 1200 dpi (dots per inch) and provides the best
print quality.

Faster Printing (FastRes 1200): The resolution is rendered differently so that the job can
print faster. This is the default setting.

1200 dpi

600 dpi

300 dpi

Custom: This prints the same as the Faster Printing setting, but you can change the scale

EconoMode (Save Toner): Text is printed using less toner. This setting is useful when you
are printing drafts.


Changing the resolution can change the formatting of your text.
