2013.3 Vivado - When I add an existing Block Diagram (BD), Vivado IDE appears to hang


While attempting to add an existing Block Diagram (BD) design to a Vivado project, if I select the "Copy sources into project" checkbox in the Add Sources dialog and click "Finish", the Vivado tool becomes unresponsive. Also, I checked the vivado.jou file and the import_files Tcl command was not listed in it.


The tool hangs due to a problem checking the Block Diagram to see if it has embedded source file content.

To work around the issue, add the BD using an import_files Tcl command from Tcl-console, or do not use the "Copy sources into project" option.

This issue is resolved in Vivado Design Suite 2013.4.
