I'd like to place them both on a panel and break them apart
after manufacturing. However, how would I indicate break away tabs in the CAD file?
Initially PCBs were designed manually by creating a photomask on a clear mylar sheet, usually at two or four times the true size. Starting from the schematic diagram the component pin pads were laid out on the mylar and then traces were routed to connect the pads. If you have many questions of PCB Design, please come here!
