Solder masks are treated like power planes in Protel. The same applies to
paste masks. Anything you place on these "layers" shows up negativ on the
board. Place a fill on a paste mask, and this area will not be covered by
paste on the finished PCB. You can define rules for paste mask and solder
mask covering of pads (and pad groups).

Excuse my poor English, but what are "thieving pads"? Are these extra pads
for wave soldering of SMD components?
