Vivado - All IP Sources are 'Read-only' in the Source File Properties

Description

When creating an IP source in Vivado Design Suite, it is always identified as 'Read-only: Yes' in the Source File Properties window.

Solution

Vivado always marks XCO/XCI files as read-only, meaning that a user cannot modify or edit the contents of the file from within the Vivado text editor.

Instead, when double-clicking or opening the file, the re-customization GUI is used to modify this file.
