2.1i: Floorpanner: Floorplanner does not remove 'constrained' blocks when 'area constraints' is used


Keywords: floorplanner, replace, placement, area, constraint

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When the option 'Floorplan' -> 'Assign Area Constraint' is done after
'Floorplan' -> 'Replace All with Placement' the original 'Replace All with
Placement' constraint remains as well as the assigned 'Area Constraint'.


Before doing an 'Area Constraint', highlight the desired hierarchy in the 'Design
Hierarchy' window. Select 'Floorplan' -> 'Remove'. This will remove the
'Placement Constraint' on the selected hierarchy. Now do 'Floorplan' -> 'Assign
Area Constraint' on the highlighted hierarchy. The hierarchy will now have the
proper constraint on it.

This will be fixed in a future release.
