Creating an intentional short, without displaying an error

I'm sure I've seen this before somewhere, I know it's possible in other Mentor packages to get round the error flags.  I want a 0603 that has a copper short between the pads, it will be added as a no-fit component through the schematic.  There are ways of doing this with drafting layers, but I don't want to rely on the CAM ouput.  If I output layer 1 copper it has to be seen as copper/trace or pad, plus I don't want to physically connect two nets together on the schematic.  Any ideas?
