In Print Composer, the field in the Composition pane that contains the DPI for your output appears next to a checkbox named Print as raster. The positioning suggests that this checkbox relates to the DPI field, but this is a false: simply changing the DPI alone without checking the box produces more detailed output.

Therefore, it appears the "Quality" text inside the DPI field is actually a label. Suggested changes:
  • Provide better visual separation between the Print as raster checkbox and the DPI field.
  • Don't put the label for the DPI field inside the field. All that field should contain is strictly the number (300, 600, etc.). It should not have any letters ("quality", "dpi", or anything else).

This is filed as a bug because the UI is confuising.
