If I set a panel to be autoscroll. scrollbar shows up correctly in the designer but I cannot scroll down to design certain component that is on the right or the bottom of the panel. How can I work around that?

It doesn't scroll because the Design canvas places a film on top of the rendered component (the little blue frame that highlights the component when you click on it). You can either make the Panel larger, or better yet, right-click and Promote to Class to make the Panel a top-level component (if it isn't already). Then, if the Panel does not have a height specified, it will "fit" itself to the entire size of the Design canvas. So if your Designer window is pretty large, you might be able to see the contents.

You can also promote any item in the Panel to its own class, and design each individually.

Lastly, there's always the Preview ability.
