LibreCAD prints the geometry as designed very well, but doesn't produce professional looking output.

Add functionality to produce more professional looking technical drawings suitable for inclusion in a quote or bid. For reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Engineering_drawing

At a minimum, this functionality should allow the user to edit the application and drawing preferences to store information about:
--The designers name / organization
--The project name or number
--Version number
--The copyright statement

When printing, the user should be able to select a template that merges this data into the finished drawing along with other data derived automatically at print time. Such automatic data would include:
--Print scale
--measurement units
--current date (print date)

Ideally, print templates would be user customizable and stored external to the project for re-use.

Addition of this feature should not eliminate the ability to print the drawing as it is today. ie without any additional meta-data shown.
