2013.2 Vivado - reimport_files command does not work properly in Tcl mode wihout -force option


In Vivado Tcl mode, I import a source file into the project. When I reimport the source file after the file is modified, the following message occurs:

INFO: [Vivado 12-429] No file reimported

The command I used is : reimport_files ../source/myfile.v


There are two ways to work around this issue:

  • Use the force option:
  • reimport_files ../source/myfile.v -force
  • Use the reimport_files command in GUI:
    1. Vivado% start_gui
    2. Modify the source code myfile.v
    3. Type reimport_files ../source/top.v in TCL console in GUI.

The issue is fixed in 2013.3.

In Vivado 2013.3, before files are reimported, the status is updated. Reimporting the files should now detect the file status correctly at the moment just before attempting the import.
