global linear factor for dimensions

In QCAD you can give a dimension a linear factor in the property editor (specific properties). I use this feature very often, because I often draw scaled-down. That means if a length is 4500 mm in reality, in my sketch I draw a line which is e.g. only 90 units. In order to get the correct dimension value in my drawing, I have to give this dimension a linear factor of 50. It would be very helpful, if there were a global linear factor for linear dimension, as it is for example in AutoCAD. Could such a global linear factor be added to the drawing preferences menu? (Please note that I don't mean the size scale factor in the dimension settings of the drawing preferences menu.)
