8.2i Constraints Editor - Crashes on Global tab/category on PERIOD cell of 1 ms


After launching Constraints Editor, I select the Global tab/category and enter 1ms in the PERIOD cell for my clock. The Constraints Editor reports that this value is incorrect, I select OK, and then it crashes. When is this going to be fixed?


You can work around this issue by either entering a value without units, such as 12 (instead of 12 ns) or by double-clicking in the cell to display the dialog box for that constraint and entering 1 ms.

This problem has been fixed in the latest 8.2i Service Pack available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is 8.2i Service Pack 2.
