Foundation F1.5: Changing Synthesis Options gives ambiguous "force updated" message

Description

Keywords: synthesis, update, FSM, synthesize, Foundation

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
After changing certain parameters (encoding style, for example) in the Synthesis->Options dialog, a message appears: "Please note that chips must be "force updated" for the changed FSM default encoding to take effect."

Solution

The wording of this message can be a bit confusing.
This message has been re-worded for the F1.5i release. It will say:

"Please re-analyze all design sources for these changes to take effect.
Select "Synthesis -> Force Analysis of All HDL Source Files" to update the
source files."
