    In the Pad designer there is an option to check for "Mech Pins use antipads as Route Keepout ARK" so check this box, define a value for anti-pad and save the pad. Then add the pad as a "mechanical" based pad and the antipad size is the route keepout area.

    In PCB Editor File - New - Mechanical symbol. Add the Pin using Layout - Pins, make sure it's of type mechanical (Check the fold out Options menu on the right hand side of the screen). Save the symbol ensuring it's saved in the psmpath location (Also make usre the pad you created is saved in the padpath location).

    Open your board and use Place  - Manually, Advanced tab and check Library, then back to Placement tab and change Components by refdes to Mechanical Symbols and your parts will be there ready to place.....
