Just turn on the checkbox :-)
On the Generation Options tab, turn on Generate milling and set the Depth parameter next to it to go slightly deeper than the board.
When I lay out boards, I set the wire/line size to the same size as the milling tool I'll be using. This shows you the width of the cut when you are laying out the lines on the Milling (46) layer. (See the second picture attached. Wires/lines on the milling layer are cyan. The width of the line is 0.0625", the same as the bit I used to mill the boards out.)
Anywhere you put a wire/line, pcb-gcode will generate gcode for, whether it is the perimeter or within the board. I left a gap in the wires/lines for the boards in the attached picture to hold them in place until drilling was finished.
This is only mentioned in passing in the manual, so I need to add a section on it.
