Document Table of Contents Layers Settings and Editing Modes

The Chip Planner allows you to control the display of resources. To determine the operations that you can perform, use the Editing Mode .

Layers Settings Pane

With the Layers Settings pane, you can manage the graphic elements that the Chip Planner displays.

You open the Layers Settings pane by clicking View > Layers Settings. The Layers Settings pane offers layer presets, which group resources that are often used together. The Basic, Detailed, and Floorplan Editing default presets are useful for general assignment-related activities. You can also create custom presets tailored to your needs. The Design Partition Planner preset is optimized for specific activities.

Editing Mode

The Chip Planner's Editing Mode determines the operations that you can perform. The Assignment editing mode allows you to make assignment changes that are applied by the Fitter during the next place and route operation. The ECO editing mode allows you to make post-compilation changes, commonly referred to as engineering change orders (ECOs).

Select the editing mode appropriate for the work that you want to perform, and a preset that displays the resources that you want to view, in a level of detail appropriate for your design.
