    Footprint shape problem in PADS Layout


      Hi All,


      I am using PADS Layout software. I need to create a footprint for TPS51200 regulator.

      On the page 34 of its Datasheet (it is attached) an example board layout is shown. "Non Solder Mask Defined Pad" shape is suggested, but I do not know how to make it in PADS PCB Decal Editor.

      I have drawn a copper shape and associated it with one  pin of IC. But how can I create solder mask  with the same shape as copper but wider (as in datasheet)?

      Thank you in advance!
