2016.1 Vivado - Code Editor, Block copy function does not behave correctly when copy and pasting across spaces and tabs


While holding down the Ctrl key a user can drag the cursor over a block of text to select it for text functions such as Cut, Copy & Paste.

In the Vivado 2016.1 Code Editor, the following incorrect behaviors have been found:

  • Block cutting and pasting across spaces and tabs removes the spaces, but leaves the tabs.
  • The buffer can be populated beyond the selected block when space and tab characters are in the selected region.
  • The buffer gets cleared on some systems after the first paste operation.


These issues are scheduled to be fixed in Vivado 2016.3.

Block selection, cutting, copying and pasting can still be used. However, users are advised be aware of these issues and to monitor results when pasting a block selection.
