Hello Everyone,

         When using HP Printer Assistant for HP Deskjet 2543, I am wondering what the desired dpi setting should be when scanning a document to PDF file.  The default setting is 200 dpi.  I wish to scan documents and save them as PDF files, copy the contents of each PDF file, and paste them into WordPress.   Seeing that these are text documents, I think I should select the Output type as either Greyscale or Black and White as opposed to Color.   Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong on that part.

           Any feedback given to this question will be appreciated.

           Thank you
