    EDIT: Already tried...it generates BOM, can't generate panels..

    Your PCB supplier should be able to do this for you, just ask them to leave them in the panel. You would normally specify the layout like 5 by 2 or 3 by 4. You might be able to do it in Dip Trace or a free Gerber software. @Supercap2F might know.

    See reply #6 above. In my experience, panelizing is handled at the fab-ordering level

    I know you can do it in Altium designer, and I imagine you could do it in just about any other software too... Here's a pretty good video about panelizing PCBs using Altium. You might also look through the videos in the rest of the list, there's some really good advice about designing PCBs for production in there.
