11.4 PlanAhead Known Issues - Clear Placement constraints do not work for BEL constraints

Description

If you import a design into the PlanAhead tool with BELs from the original netlist or UCF, clear placement constraints should clear both LOCs and BELs.However, there is a known issue in the PlanAhead tool where whenyou select the elements of the design with BELs and give the command "Tools --> Clearplacement constraints," the BEL constraints are not cleared. The tool has no way to clear the BEL constraints.

Solution

To work around this issue, create a new floorplan and import a new ".ucf" file that does not have the BEL LOCs.

This issue is currently been investigated for a fix in a future release.
