Yes,

    In PCB, go to Tools / Preferences - Defaults - Via.  Turn on tenting. OK, Turn on 
Permanent.  Also, it is useful to save your settings here as well.

This has worked successfully for me.

Subject: [PEDA] tenting vias


| Does anyone out there know if Protel 99SE SP6 can really be set up so that
| the via tenting checkbox is automatically checked when you change layers
| using * ?
| According to the curt email response from Protel tech support (see question
| and answer below), there isn't a way, but I've had mixed results with
| getting good support from Protel, so I figured I'd throw out the question
| here...

| Hi,
