Print job does not come out as clear and crisp as it used to. User recently upgraded from MicroStation V8 2004 to MicroStation XM. They are printing to the same printer (HP DesignJet 1050c).



The Printer's Quality setting was set to "Fast (draft)" instead of "Normal (Final)" or "Best (Enhanced)" like it used to be. To reset this value, right-click on the HPDJ 1050c printer (in Control Panel>Printers and Faxes), choose Properties>Printing Preferences>Options>Quality and set value as desired. Also choose Properties>Advanced>Printing faults>Options>Quality and set the same value.
