I'm sorry but I can't help as I don't understand why it remains to 300dpi, the only soulution i could think of is reinstalling dopdf too if you reinstalled the operating system.

If you have very large PDF files changing the dpi won't affect it that much, try instead following the tutorial here http://www.dopdf.com/forum/topic/keeping-file-size-down to reduce the PDF file size (also make sure you don't embed the fonts to reduce the size).

I had the same problem with the last release,

changing the resolution, in the property page, for example from 300 to 72 dpi and then OK, when I come back to the property page I find the resolution to 300 again, not 72.

So I removed this version and reinstalled the release 6.2.288 that works fine.

smbells, does that happen only when printing from Internet Explorer, or it happens in notepad and word too?

It happens printing from all programs like word and notpad, but also when I try to set the dpi resolution as default, changing it from contol pannel and printer defaults.

I have win xp sp3 italian version.

If I use version 6.2.288 is ok, with 6.2.300 or 6.2.301 I have the problem.
