Create a "dummy" PCB-pad in Designer

Hi,

 

we use PADS VX.2.4, net flow. We need to make a direct wire connection to a board.

So we need some solder points on the PCB. I know how to handle this in PADS by adding a component and make a connection of the nets.

But I am missing the documentation in the schematic.

Also If I do not have a part in the schematic everytime the schematic get forwarded to the PCB the connections done in the PADS are getting deleted.

So I need to create a new part? How about the DEVICE attribute? There is no device number because it is no device - only a solder point?
