Add Rounded Rectangle to the Template drop-down list of the Pad Properties dialog window. There have been many queries about how to create a rounded-rectangle pad. Providing a rounded-rectangle pad template would eliminate the tedious work-around required to build one. Here is the most recent rounded-rectangle pad thread - http://www.diptrace.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=11448

And for what it is worth, here's a link that will direct you to a thread in the PCB Libraries forum where it is being recommended that the corner radius of a rounded-rectangle pad should be equal to 25% of the narrowest pad width (rounded off to the nearest 0.01mm) and limited to a maximum value of 0.25mm - http://www.pcblibraries.com/forum/rounded-rectangle-pad-shape_topic1462.html

Note: IPC-7351C seems to recommend this pad shape, including the 25%/0.25mm rule.
