help needed with kicad an v-groove

I use Kicad and I do not know how to draw the vgrooves with it. I've never panelized boards, but I think that this must be the best option for panelizing several same size rectangular ones, am I wrong?

I don't know how your boards are shaped, but slots with mousebites are an option too.

Sorry, I thought It was implied on the question:

Yeah, mousebites are an option too, but since the v-groove is offered and I don't know how to use it, I was wondering if maybe someone can explain how to use it with DirtyPCB's and Kicad. It looks at first sight like v-grooves will do cleaner cuts than mousebites do.
