12.3 ISE Text Editor - Unable to use "Match Word" in ISE Text Editor Find


I'm trying to use the "Match Word" feature in the Find options of the ISE Text Editor to search for keywords that match the word entered in the search field. However, when I do so, the text editor searches the keyword as if it were a wildcard (does not find exact words).

How can I resolve this issue?


If the "Wildcard" Match Type is selected, a wildcard search will be performed, regardless of the Match Word selection being enabled or not.

To perform an exact word search, change the match type to "Literal" and select the "Match Word" checkbox.

In ISE Design Suite 13.1 "Match Word" will be disabled if Wildcard is selected.
