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.

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

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

600 dpi

300 dpi

Custom: This setting produces the same resolution as the Faster Printing setting, but you
can change the scale patterns.

EconoMode (Save Toner): Text is printed with less toner. This setting is useful when you
are printing drafts. You can use this setting independently of other print-quality settings.


Changing the resolution can change the formatting of your text.
