2.1i FPGA Editor - How do I use the Manual Place option?
Keywords: FPGA Editor, Alliance, Foundation, manual, place, tool, component, site
General Description: How does the Manual Place option work? It seems to always be grayed out when I look at it.
Use the "Manual Place" option by highlighting the particular component in the list of unplaced components. Then, hold down the CTRL key and click on the particular site on the device into which you'd like to place the component.
Now you have both the component name and the site highlighted; "Manual Place" is no longer grayed out, and you now can use it.
