Can scanner settings remember last used values?

When I scan paper, I like to use 300 DPI to give OCR a good base to build text. Whenever I open the Import page for my scanner, the DPI dropdown always says 200 DPI. Is there a way for me to select a specific DPI and make it stick as the default for subsequent scans? It would be really nice if I could create presets for different document types, e.g.

  • Text
    • Mode: B&W
    • DPI: 300
  • Graphics
    • Mode: Color
    • DPI: 200

What kind of scanner do you use and do you scan via DEVONthink’s View > Sidebar > Import > Image Capture interface or do you use a third-party app?

@cgrunenberg I am using a Brother MFC-L2717DW scanner and the built-in sidebar interface for capture

This is a known issue in case of certain scanners, especially the ones by Brother. It’s unclear whether this is an issue of the driver and/or of the Image Capture framework (as both are basically a black box), for most other scanners it’s working as expected.

OK, not a huge issue, I was just wondering if I was doing something wrong. Thanks for digging into it!
