General Description:
How do I enable the "zoom to box" feature for FPGA Editor on my PC?

(This feature is available on Workstation platforms by using the middle mouse button.)

Solution

Because most PCs have a mouse with only two buttons, it is necessary to adjust the command to perform the "zoom to box" function:

1. Open the fpga_editor.ini file in a text editor (this file resides in the %XILINX%\data directory).

2. Find the following line in the fpga_editor.ini file:

alias [MiddleDrag] "drag zoom"

3. Change that line to read:

alias [Shift+RightDrag] "drag zoom"

Now, when you hold down the Shift key and drag a rectangular box using the right mouse-button in FPGA Editor, the tool will automatically zoom to that box.

NOTE: If FPGA Editor is open while you are editing the fpga_editor.ini file, you must close and re-open FPGA Editor in order for the changes to take effect.
