5.2i ISE - Selecting a process "Help" button or selecting F1 with a process selected brings up the CPLD Basic Property Options help

Description

Keywords: CPLD, Basic property options, XC9500, 9500, CoolRunner, F1, help, ISE, content

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I select the "Help" button or press F1 in a Process Properties window, the help contents for the selected process should appear. However, for many processes in the 5.2i software, pressing "F1" causes the default help screen (b_overview.htm) to appear, which provides help information for CPLD devices.

Solution

To locate the desired help information, select the "Show Contents" button in the content window to display the table of contents for the ISE Help system. You can then browse to find help on your subject of choice.

This problem is fixed in the latest 5.2i Service Pack available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is 5.2i Service Pack 1.
