General Description: When the ISE Project Navigator is first opened, the font in the Project Navigator "Transcript" window is variable width. This make some of the data (such as XST synthesis statistics) hard to read due to the column alignment being off.
You can fix this problem in the following ways:
1. Open an existing report or text file. The font in the "Transcript" window changes to a fixed width font after a document (e.g., report file) is opened in the ISE Test Editor. The fixed width font will remain as long as Project Navigator is open.
2. For a permanent solution, make the following two data directory file changes. a. Edit the "HDLEditor.cfg" file in the "$XILINX/data" directory. (See resolution 2 for details.) b. Add a new file named "reportlang.ecc" to the "$XILINX/data" directory. (See resolution 3 for "reportlang.ecc" file content.)
The fix ties the font used in the "Transcript" window to that of the report viewer. To change both fonts, use the Edit -> Preferences menu option. The fix should eliminate the "changing" font and allow you to set the font in the output window.
Make the following two changes to the "HDLEditor.cfg" file in the "$XILINX/data directory":
1. Add the following line at the end of the [Languages] section:
2. Add the following section at the end of the file:
[Report] Chroma=dword:00000001 Case=dword:00000001 Comment Start 1="" Comment End 1="" Comment Start 2="" Comment End 2="" Extra word chars="#" Keywords=reportlang.ecc Extensions=log,syr,bgn,bld,mrp,tw1,par,dly,pad,twr,ibs,mppr,lpk,lpc,cmd_log
Create a file named "reportlang.ecc" in the "$XILINX/data" directory and copy the following text into the new file:
; ; Report language color template for HDLEditor ; [Parser] Operators = Delimiters = KWStartChars = KWMiddleChars = KWEndChars = NumTags = 0
