3.1i Floorplanner - An RPM cannot be placed in a floorplan

Description

Keywords: 3.1i, Floorplanner, place, RPM

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In the 3.1i Floorplanner, some RPMs (Relationally Placed Macros) cannot be placed onto a floorplan; when I attempt to place the RPM (in a valid location), the tool displays the "No" symbol (a circle with a slash through the center).

Solution

To work around this problem, highlight the RPM in the hierarchy window and select Pattern -> Unbind. Then, drag the RPM components onto the floorplan window and place them. Finally, with the RPM highlighted, select Pattern -> Bind. This method will not affect the RPM structure and allows the RPM to be placed in the floorplan.

This issue was fixed in the 4.1i software.
