Is there a way to switch off "Mounted" or "Opposite" layers in a through hole padstack?

I am attempting to create a Decal for a through hole component in Pads Layout. The board that this component will go on is double sided however I do not want pads on both sides of the board for the component nor do I want the hole plated. I have created the component but I get Connectivity errors because the hole is not plated and actually no connection exists on the offending layer. Fills and thermal relief patterns also cause an issue. I have "hacked" the component with a copper keepout to prevent the fills from reaching the holes but surely there is a better way? Is there an option to tell Pads that the component is only connected on one side and not both sides of the board?
