I want to have a region in my PCB without solder mask while the other regions should have solder mask. I am not sure how do I do it in Altium? Is it by having a Solid (copper) Fill in the Top/Bottom Solder layer?

The solder mask layer is a "negative", so to remove solder mask from an area, simply place any shape on desired "Top/Bottom Solder" layer.
