In Document Settings, look at the PDF Export tab. Under the Color tab,
select Printer for Output. Now you should have access to Custom
Rendering farther down the tab - check Use Custom Rendering, and its
settings will be available. For reducing dot gain, you probably want to
reduce the Frequency setting (how much, I don't know), but perhaps leave
the other settings unchanged.
