Project Navigator - Some options of XST or Implement are locked


Some options of XST or Implementation processes are locked to a specific value.

How can the processes be unlocked and edited?


To Unlock a Design Strategy

By default, process properties that are set as part of a Design Strategy are "locked" and cannot be modified. However, you can unlock a Design Strategy to modify process properties as follows:

1. In the Design Goals and Strategies dialog box, select the Unlock option.
2. Click OK.

The process property settings associated with the Design Strategy are retained until you modify them. The Design Strategy is no longer applied to the project, but you can view the Design Strategy that was used as a starting point for your current settings in the Last Applied Strategy field.

Note: When using the Balanced Design Goal, process properties are set to system default values and are not locked.
