I am new to Diptrace
Why there is no Silkscreen around the 0805 resistor/caps? (like the picture showing)
Also the keepout not there??

The 0805 pattern starts to get close to "no silkscreen outline necessary" territory. If you don't like the standard DipTrace libraries you can always make your own custom pattern libraries. In my custom generic library the smallest SMD footprint with any kind of silkscreen drawing is the 0603, which is really stretching the limits of practicality with a couple of tiny dots between pads.

Are you asking about Route Keepout or Place Keepout? Route Keepouts can be added in the Pattern Editor to your custom libraries and in the PCB Layout editor to your boards. As far as I know the Place Keepout is only available in the PCB Layout editor to define board-specific component keepout areas. Setting up the Design Rules and activating the [X]Enable Real-time DRC option will help you avoid component collisions during the placement process.
