5.1i XST - When "Keep Hierarchy" is used, I cannot choose "_" or "/' characters as delimiters


Keywords: improving, routing, PAR

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When "Keep Hierarchy" is used, two characters are available for the delimiter: a slash ("/") or an underscore ("_").

However, when I turn "Keep Hierarchy" on, the slash character appears, regardless of whether I select "/' or "_". If I turn "Keep Hierarchy" off, the delimiter will correctly be "/" or "_", depending upon my selection.


The hierarchy separator is used to define "what the hierarchy separator in the netlist will be when the design is FLATTENED".

The hierarchy separator used for "Keep Hierarchy" is always a slash; the user selection will NOT affect this.
