Hi,

When you care about spending too much ink on printing while testing, 
I can recommend

to install libreoffice writer 

and then download 

1cm-paper.odt ,this one spills minimal ink

You can download it here:

https://extensions.libreoffice.org/templates/1cm-squared-paper

This one is a good demonstration to compare printing in 600 dpi or 
1200 dpi.

greetings.
