ModelSim Xilinx Edition (MXE) 6.0a - ModelSim shuts down unexpectedly when I try to enlarge the screen by clicking the plus (+) button in the top right corner of the Wave Window

Description

Keywords: ModelSimXE, shutdown, plus symbol

ModelSim shuts down unexpectedly when I try to enlarge the screen by clicking the plus (+) button in the top right corner of the Wave Window. This problem occurs only when ModelSim is started through Project Navigator.

Solution

This is a known issue that is machine-dependent. You can work around this issue by using one of the following methods:
- You can start ModelSim in stand-alone mode (instead of starting it from Project Navigator).
- If ModelSim must be invoked from Project Navigator, do not use the plus (+) button in the top right corner of the Wave Window to expand the screen. Instead, left-click the plus (+) button in the top left corner of the screen to zoom up on the image.

This issue is fixed in MXE III 6.0d, which is released with ISE 8.1i.
