2014.1 Vivado - "Place I/O Ports in Area" does not place ports in Device view

Description

In the synthesized design and I/O Planning Layout, I select some ports and click "Place I/O Ports in Area" in the right click menu.

I drag out an area in the Device Window in the upper left corner, but when I release the mouse button, the ports disappear, and no ports are placed.

Solution

This issue occurs when the area selection does not allow for legal placement of the BEL's for each port.

In Vivado 2014.1 and later versions, this has been changed so that the area selection goes through regardless of whether the placer can find a valid location for all selected ports.
