Charles, common practice with all CAD drafting is to use different layers, for example set up a layer specifically for construction lines, select this layer in the layer list and draw what you need (construction lines, points etc.), when done make layer invisible (eye icon) if needed (particularly when printing out your master piece).
have a look here for more info about layers:viewtopic.php?f=50&t=2020&p=9477&hilit=layers#p9477
Recently the option to use Xlines and Rays (infinite lines used for construction purposes) has been added to QCAD, read here to find out more:viewtopic.php?f=31&t=2959
