How to get visible drill holes on layout?

I have designed PCB with PADS layout (ver. 9.5).

I want to print layout on transparent sheet for light exposure.

Etching and drilling will be done manually so I need visible holes on each pads, vias, etc...

How can I do that?


Vias are open in center but when flooding with gnd copper, they stay under.

Pads are closed anyway.

Holes are visible on design phase but not in printing (CAM).


I know that I can change pad in padstack on each component but still most of time traces blocks part of the hole.

Is there any simpler way?


Thanks for your help!
