PadStack for a blind hole part

We have a custom pin that is part SMT and part TH ( a small lenght of that pin has to enter into the pcb).  We cannot permit the hole to go all the way thru the pcb.  When we create a padstack in pads layout, we cannot use a partial drill (blind).  Only thru hole .


Is there a way to change that?  If we cannot find any way to do so, we will use a partial via instead of a part.
