Post subject:  Panelizing: How to specify V-score or tab-route?

When panelizing in Diptrace, how do I specify v-score or tab-route? Do I need spacing between the PCBs for v-score? I assume so for tab-route.

Please open "Route -> Layer Setup", go to "Non-Signal" tab and add one custom layer. Name it as you want, for example "v-scoring". Close layer setup.
On drawing panel, find and select new layer from drop-down box. Choose shape type (line, polyline, etc.) and draw new shape on design area.
Finally, right click on the shape and select "Do not panelize" from submenu.
Export v-scores to separate Gerber file and include to other Gerber files.

I think you don't need extra space between board outlines and v-score if there is no copper objects too close to board outlines.

I am an engineer of PCB manufacturer ( visit http://www.joga-pcba.com ) ,
usually we made V-score with 0 spacing ,fur tab-route , you'd better give 1.5 or 2mm spacing + Tabs & stamp holes.
Thx!

I used to specify the V-score based on the depth of the score and from the cross-sectional view. There is a standard way to specify v-score is dividing each measurement equally, 1/3rd cut on top and 1/3rd cut on the bottom, leaving 1/3rd web in the middle.

This is a great post! My first try at a panel came off with one minor issue; After placing fiducials around the board of my panel when I tried to mark them as 'Do Not Panelize' I would mouse over the pad and right click but the menu only has 10 items and Do Not Panelize is not one of those items. After Reading the Help, watching the video and visiting this forum I still had not found a means to get the right click to show me the Do Not Panelize option. By accident I zoomed way out and right clicked, the 22 item menu appeared with Do Not Panelize! My PCB is 15mm X 10mm a panel of 100 is 10cm X 10cm.
The Short menu up close:

The long menu Zoomed out:
