2013.1 Vivado - "Go To Instantiation" option for Design view leads to incorrect instantiation location


When viewing the Synthesized Design view in my project, right-clicking on a module in the netlist view and selecting "Go To Instantiation" (F7) opens a file to a line that has no relation to the module I selected.

How can I resolve this issue?


In most cases, the "Go To Instantiation" option will work correctly or not be available at all. A few isolated cases have been found where the option goes to the wrong location.

Some possible ways to work around this issue are as follows:

  • Select an object that is physically linked to the object in question. This is most easily seen when the schematic view is opened.
  • Select the parent or driver of the desired object.
  • Select another instance within the same hierarchy.
  • Manually locate the instantiation in the project hierarchy.
