I wonder if there's a way to change the DPIs I get when I do File/Export/PDF.
Does anyone know the default value?

I may be hasty to reply, but everything in the PDF is composed of vector graphics, thus DPI depends on your printer or the software which sends a PDF to the printer. If, however, some of your graphics are not vectorised, you may experience unwanted artefacts or coarse images when zooming in. This can be corrected by editing the images and making them larger (not just scaling up, but possibly re-genrerating them).

Then  again, there is also the issue of graphics compression and I suspect
there are options that enable you to modify default settings.

* Edit -> Preferences... -> Converters

* See which command you typically use to generate your PDF's (there are

* See the manual pages of the command/s involved, e.g. man pdflatex

* Change the default commands under Edit -> Preferences... -> Converters

Hope it helps,
