FS#264 - Support for "Layouts" (paper space, viewport)

There is one important ACAD feature that I would really like to see supported in QCAD3 and that is “Layouts”

Looking at the block lists, it seems to me that it can’t be too much extra work to support it, since the model space and different paper spaces are already shown there - and one can edit it.

QCAD draws infinitely easier than ACAD and drawing layouts is a primary feature of ACAD. With this in QCAD I can hardly see why anyone that does 2D work would need ACAD at all.

What I would love to see in this

- Ability to draw a layout that was just paper size.
- Ability to include auto-completed references (specifically scale)
- Ability to define the visible layers in a layout (so that printing Layout 1 always includes the same information regardless of what is currently visible).

This feature is very important and could really reduce the gap between QCAD and ACAD.
