Project Navigator - The process property/option I want to set is not displayed


I need to check or set the value of a process property in Project Navigator. However, when I select Process Properties for the process, the desired property is not displayed.

For example: In the MAP Process Properties, there should be an option called "Starting Placer Cost Table" (aka -t).

However, it does not seem to be available. How can it be displayed? "Starting Placer Cost Table (-t)" MAP


Some properties arenot available if the Property Display Level is set to Standard.

Setting Display Level to Advanced allowsboth standard and advanced properties appear in the Process Properties dialog boxes. This can be done using either of the following methods.

To Display Advanced Properties Using the Preferences Dialog Box
  1. Select Edit > Preferences.
  2. In the Preferences dialog box, click the ISE General category.
  3. In the ISE General page, set the Property Display Level option to Advanced.
  4. Click OK.

To Display Advanced Properties Using the Process Properties Dialog Box
  1. In the View pane of the Design panel, select a Design View.
  2. In the Hierarchy pane, select a source file.
    Note The source file you select affects the processes that appear in the Processes pane; only the processes that apply to the selected source file are shown.
  3. In the Processes pane, select a process.
  4. Select Process > Process Properties.
    Note: You can also right-click the process and select Process Properties. If there are no properties for a process, the Process Properties menu command is grayed out.
  5. In the Process Properties dialog box, set the Property Display Level option to Advanced.

In the event that a property is not available under the Advanced setting, a user should use the "Other <Process> Command Line Options" field to enter the property and value.
