Hi Jean,
This is possible to do. You can select Pin and then go for edit - properties 
and then set your Dyn_Max_Thermal_conns as 8 . This will change only selected 
pins as 8 way thermal connection and the rest pins will have the default 
setting what ever you are defining in shape parameters.
Hope this will help you.
Thanks and Regards

Does setting Dyn_Min_Thermal_Conns = 8 and Dyn_Max_Thermal_Conns = 8 on the pin

Hi folks,

I have a surface mount DC-DC Converter with round pads which I would like to 
connect to a top surface plane with an 8-way connection. I can get it to work 
if I choose the "8 way connect" under the shape parameters for smd pins, but I 
really don't want all my smd pins to follow this rule, just this pin. I've 
tried to attach the Dyn_Thermal_Con_Type = 8_way and/or the 
Dyn_thermal_Best_Fit = True properties to the pin, but I still only get 4 
connections. Any idea what else I might try?
Thanks for the help!
