Vivado - How to Drag and Drop to Add Sources into a Vivado and PlanAhead Project

Description

Is it possible to add a file to a PlanAhead/Vivado project by simply dragging the file to the Hierarchy window?

When I try this, I see an icon that indicates that dropping in the Vivado/PlanAhead IDE is not permitted.

Is there a way to add files in the GUI other than selecting Add Files and browsing for source files in the 'Add File' window?

Solution

In the PlanAhead/Vivado tool, it is not possible to add a file by simply dragging it to the Hierarchy window.

However, you can select Add Source and then drag and drop a file from Explorer into the Add Sources window.

Additionally, you can add one or multiple files from a directory using the add_files Tcl command in the Tcl console.

Examples:

add_files rtl.v

add_file c:/my_source_dir

Run "add_files -help" for complete syntax.
