This could be combined with my batch print request. You could adjust "Global" features and print across a block of drawings.

On a complex system, I define the assembly, but then you end up making a detailed drawing of sub components for manufacturing. Having the detailed drawing linked to the main assembly would sure be quite a bonus so that the detailed part be updated automatically to follow the development of the main ass'y. I believe that in order for such a feature to be effective, it probably means that both drawings should be opened at the same time in one instance of QCAD...
