I'm not sure you can do that; just another Altium restriction. (I know you can do this in PADS). I tried turning off rules, etc., but nothing worked.

In the PCB editor, you can add nets to the board using the following menu option:

Design > Netlist > Edit Netlist...

Then click "Add" to create a new net. Once it's been added, it will be in your available netlist when placing objects on the PCB.

Edit: Whoops, double post.

Being a DipTrace user I really enjoyed the Altium's project structure and synchronization. In DipTrace I have that "create net" tool right in front of me in the PCB Layout. However Diptrace gives an absolute freedom in Schematic and board synch, which is not the best thing when you forget about something)))
