Raster images have a dpi, but the page content of a PDF is a vector graphic, which does not have dpi.  Vector graphics can scale to any size without lose of quality, essentially an infinate dpi. 

That said, PDF page content can include raster images.  In that case, the part that is a raster image has a dpi rating, and it can be seen in Acrobat.

I print lots of labels for my small business. Up until recently, when I got my file ready to print, I was able to select "print on both sides" and select ADVANCED settings to change the dpi from 600 to 1200.

 

Tonight, I was NOT able to see the "print on both sides" NOR see any advanced settings that include the dpi changes.

 

I have a Canon MF753CDW printer and have had no issues til now. Not sure what could be causing the issue.

 

I've removed and re-installed the printer. I've cleaned the printheads according to manufacturer recommendations. I have been printing labels since September in the EXACT Same manner with no issues til now.

 

Not sure if it's an update in Windows, Adobe, or Canon.

 

Any thoughts?
