Palm Sander Scratch Pattern

Doug Reynolds
I have a Porter Cable Mdl #330 palm sander. What quality scratch pattern does it leave in hard wood with 220 grit - good enough to go straight to dye or, should I hand sand with 220 grit as a last step?

Does it make any difference which direction the sander goes i.e., is the scratch pattern circular or linear?

Thanks, Doug
