Can I select a print resolution by indicating a specific dpi (dots per inch) setting?

    No. The print resolution is determined by other driver software settings.

    In Windows, the Quality Option and paper Type settings determine the print resolution.
    • If you've selected the Main tab, you'll see the window below.
    • If you've selected the Advanced tab, you'll see the window below.

    In Mac OS X, the resolution settings depend on the Mode setting.

    Note: To access the resolution settings in Mac OS X, select Print from the File menu. Then select Print Settings from the pop-up menu.
    • If you've selected Automatic as the Mode setting, the resolution is determined by the Media Type setting and the position of the Quality/Speed slider.
    • If you've selected Advanced as the Mode setting, the resolution is determined by the Media Type setting and the Print Quality setting.
