PlanAhead - [Common-53] User Exception: No open design. Please open a design before executing this command

Description

I have a project open PlanAhead project and am able to view the hierarchy and open files for editing. However, when I run Tcl commands from the console, I get the following message:

PlanAhead - [Common-53] User Exception: No open design. Please open a design before executing this command

Solution

In order to complete commands that require PlanAhead tool to find or get details about objects in the project design, the design needs to be loaded into memory.

This can be done from the Flow Navigator or from the Flow menu option:
  • RTL Analysis -> Open Elaborated Design
  • Synthesis -> Open Synthesis Design
  • Implementation -> Open Implemented Design
