Thanks a lot for trying to help.
Actually my question is about having different designs in one file for panelization. Not similar ones where you choose the function mentionned in your last post.

I believe the reason DipTrace doesn't support different boards into one then allow you to panelize it is reality, all PCB manufactures charge a lot (10X) for different designs in a panel. Like I said, it is far cheaper to place each design on it's own panel then to combine them so why would you throw away money? If you find a board shop (that can produce working PCB's) that will allow different designs on the same panel for for the same price as one design let me know.

Choosing whether you should use V-score or a tab routing method depends largely on the design like shape, edge components, edge quality, time, etc.
