Vivado HLS - I accidentally closed a pane; how can I restore the default GUI view?


I have unintentionally closed the directives tab in the GUI. How can I reload the pane back? Can I restore the default GUI view?


All panes can be activated with Windows > Show View.

For directives tab, open the view menu: Window> Show View > Directive

To restore the default GUI view, remove the configuration directory .autoesl or .vivado_hls folder inside C:\Users\<USERNAME> to restore the functionality on the next GUI session.

Note: The history of recent projects will also be lost unless recentproject.xml is restored back into the new folder.
