12.1 Project Navigator - Synplify(Pro) or Precision Synthesis process consistently appears out of date


The Synplify, Synplify Pro, or Precision Synthesis process appears is incorrectly given an "Out-of-Date" status in the following situations:
  • After successfully running Synthesis and/or Implementation tools, user adds a UCF file with a timing constraint using Constraints Editor. At this point, re-running will put process status always out-of-date regardless of whether synthesis succeeded.
  • Up-to-date Synthesis process flow status goes out-of-date after close/reopen project

I am not able to rerun the processes to obtain the green status even through the console messages display success completion.

The status prevents the implementation flow from continuing.


To work around this issue, right click on the Synthesis process and select "Force Process Up-to-Date"

This will temporarily put the process up to date.  However, subsequent Implementation runs will put the status back out-of-date and the "Force Process Up-to-Date" option will need to be applied again.

This issue is resolved in ISE Design Suite 12.2.
