11.1 PlanAhead - Why do I need to specify my top-level module/entity when running Synthesis?

Description

When I Run Synthesis from PlanAhead, it prompts me to enter the Top Module Name. Why is this necessary? Will I need to do it each time I Run Synthesis?

Solution

To give the user finer control, PlanAhead asks the user to enter the Top Module Name rather than populating it yourself. The value you enter will be entered for all further Synthesis Runs, although the user has the ability to change it, if desired.
