14.2 PlanAhead - Report Utilization button is shown for Elaborated design


In a Virtex-7, Artix-7, or Kintex-7 FPGA design, if I open the Elaborated Design (pre-synth, RTL) I see a Report Utilization option. However, if I select it, nothing seems to happen.

Is this the expected behavior?


The Report Utilization option should not be available before synthesis. Selecting the Report Utilization button does not produce an action because it is not available, but the option should be removed or grayed out when the Elaborated View is open. Note that running the report_utilization command in the Tcl Console will give the appropriate message in this situation:

ERROR: [Common 17-69] Command failed: report_utilization can be run only after synthesis has successfully completed.

The option has been removed in the 14.3 PlanAhead tool.
