2.1i FPGA Editor - Macros cannot be deleted once they have been added to a design


Keywords: FPGA Editor, macro, delete

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
Once a macro has been added to a design in FPGA Editor, it cannot be deleted.



To work around this problem:

- Use "xdl -ncd2xdl design.ncd" to dump the NCD design file to an ASCII XDL file (design.xdl).

- Remove the comps and nets manually from the ASCII XDL file.

- Use "xdl -xdl2ncd design.xdl new.ncd" to recreate the NCD file.

This will be fixed in a future software release.


Another work-around is to unbind the macro and manually delete the comps and nets in the editor.
