I have a board with a ground plane, a component with with one pin connected to ground (same net as the ground plane), and a terminal block pin that has a trace the runs to the ground pin of the component. When doing the polygon ground plane I want the component pin connected to the ground plane but not the terminal block pin (which is also ground but has a trace running to the component ground pin. Is there a way to do a query that will allow the component pin to be tied to the ground plane but not the pin at the terminal block? I can get this to work by changing the terminal pin to a "no net", doing the copper pour, then going back and changing the terminal pin back to the "GND net" but it's a hassle to do it this way.

Forgot to add that I'm using the latest Altium PCB layout release.

why don't you place a polygon pour cutout around the terminal block? it is a lot easier.

First route the trace from terminal block than do polygon pour and select "do not pour over same net object".
