Schematic - After I edit a Xilinx macro, I am unable to push into it

Description

When I edit a macro symbol from the Xilinx library (for example, FD16CE), a copy of the symbol is placed into my project directory, but there is no longer a link to the lower-level sheet.

Solution

When you edit the symbol in Symbol Editor, bring up the symbol properties by double-clicking the background; be sure that the level is set to MXILINX.

Additionally, ensure that the symbol is saved as "symbolname.sym", and not "copy_of_symbolname.sym".
