Selecting "File->Print" brings up a formatting/layout dialogue from
which the "Print..." button brings up a printer-selection dialogue.

The printer-selection dialogue is exactly the same as in 'qcad'.

    Name         [Print to file (PDF) v] [Properties]
    Output file: [<name of output file>.pdf]  [...]
  [Options >>]                  [Print  ]  [Cancel  ]

The printer name field is a drop-down selection box.  It is pre-filled with
"Print to file (PDF)".  It highlights, but no other options are shown.
