2014.2 Vivado - After changing the target simulator in Tcl console, the target simulator shown in Vivado IDE does not change

Description

When I check the Simulation Settings in the Vivado GUI, I can see the target simulator displayed in the "Simulation Settings" window. 

The default target simulator is Vivado Simulator.


If I change the target simulator to ModelSim in the Tcl console, the displayed target simulator is still Vivado Simulator.


Example command:

set_property target_simulator ModelSim [current_project]

 

Solution

This issue has been fixed in Vivado 2014.3.
 
The change that has been implemented is a visual correction. 
 
The functionality was always correct in that when the setting is changed via Tcl, the change is correctly applied.
