Thermal Relief Issues

Hi,

     I have been trying to find a way to add thermal relief to certain surface mount pads in my PADS layout design to make solder rework slightly easier. The problem is that that I only want to do this for specified components as I have certain components operating at high current levels and want to flood over those. Is there any easy way to do this? I have tried unchecking/checking the Plane Thermal option in the Pin Properties but it is locked for every component.

 

Thanks for your time.
