If you are looking to have better control over your solder mask and paste mask output in PADS Layout, including the ability to under size specific components then you should take a look at technote MG82305:


This technote discusses the options available to you for creating over and under sizes globally, at the PCB decal level and for specific components. It also discusses how to modify your settings to apply global Over(under)size settings to just the electrical layer pads or to solder mask/paste mask pads sizes called out in the pad stacks as well.
