System Generator and PlanAhead 14.1 - When opening an MDL from within a PlanAhead project the device can get reset to default, causing failures


After adding my MDL file into a PlanAhead 14.1 project and trying to generate the MDL, or, alternatively, opening the MDL from within PlanAhead, the following errors occur:

Error using ==> xlMapFamily at 60

This is a known issue in 14.1. It does not occur in PlanAhead 14.2.
