Bug Description

In most projects I have to plot several outputs for different purposes (mostly Gerber and SVG) with specific output format settings, directories and layers selection. Repeating it every time is cumbersome and error-prone, but could be eliminated if it was possible to define some presets global or in file, so that this repeated actions could be performed in just a few clicks.

Also fabs will not be required to publish lengthy descriptions like http://support.seeedstudio.com/knowledgebase/articles/1824574-how-to-generate-gerber-and-drill-files-from-kicad but rather just provide 1 simple downloadable preset with correct settings.

This is going to be added to the version 6 road map. It's something that I've wanted to do for a long time but just haven't found the time to get around to it.
