I don't understand why your manufature really need this type of data. Althoug In Expeditionpcb, you can output it by using boolean operation in mask generation, and it's also possible to process it on the CAM system, but I don't rember whether Pads can do such way except re-defining the throug type padstacks .

I suggest you call your manufacture asking why. Even that is a press-fit components, it can't bring you with any advantages to let soldmask fully covering your pads.

There is a dedicated PADS community: http://communities.mentor.com/mgcx/community/pcb/pads They may have more information there too.

Best regards,
