2014.1 Vivado - The Associate Elf File Dialog doesn't have a way to deselect all files

Description

In Vivado Design Suite if I right click in the Sources view and click on Associate ELF Files, there is a text message that says to "Deselect all ELF files to disassociate". 

However, there does not seem to be a way to do so.

How can I deselect all of the ELF files?

Is this possible?

Solution

It should not be possible to deselect all ELF files for a given Microblaze instance. 

There should always be an ELF file provided for every processor instance.  

If there are no user ELF files, then the default bootloop should be used.

A user will have to remove the file from the project manually or use TCL commands to remove the association:

set_property SCOPED_TO_CELLS {} [get_files -all -of_objects [get_fileset sources_1] {<fileName>.elf}] 
set_property SCOPED_TO_REF "" [get_files -all -of_objects [get_fileset sources_1] {<fileName.elf}]

In Vivado 2014.2 the text in the GUI dialog that mentions deselecting all ELF files will be removed or changed to be more precise.
