4.2i Foundation - HDL source files must reside in the Foundation project directory


Keywords: source, HDL, copy, PCM, Project Manager, source, VHDL

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When HDL source files are added to a Foundation project, they are also copied to the Foundation project directory. Even if these source files originally resided in another directory on the drive, a copy will still be made in the Foundation project directory.

In addition, any edits made to the files in Foundation will be made only to the local copy in the Foundation project directory.


There is no way to "add" the HDL source files to the Foundation project and still have the working files reside in a location other than the Foundation project directory.

The working copy of the files will always reside in the Foundation project directory.
