Quartus® Prime synthesis generates and automatically names internal design nodes during processing. The Quartus® Prime Pro Edition uses different conventions than other Quartus software products to generate node names during synthesis. When you synthesize your other Quartus software product project in Quartus® Prime Pro Edition, the synthesis-generated node names may change. If any scripts or constraints depend on the synthesis-generated node names, update the scripts or constraints to match the Quartus® Prime Pro Edition synthesis node names.

Avoid dependence on synthesis-generated names due to frequent changes in name generation. In addition, verify the names of duplicated registers and PLL clock outputs to ensure compatibility with any script or constraint.
