Assignment types to import

Allows you to specify the types of assignments to import. The following are the assignment types that you can import:

  • Global Assignments— Specifies that global assignments are imported.
  • Instance Assignments— Allows you to specify the type of instance assignments that are imported.
    • All assignments to pins— Specifies that assignments made to pins, including location and I/O standard assignments, are imported.
    • Promote assignments to all instances of the entity— Specifies promotion of instance assignments to all instances of the entity, or only instances with names that match a pattern specified in the Instance wildcard box.

Certain global assignments— such as those specified in the Compilation Process Settings dialog box— are not affected by the Import Assignments command, and will retain their current values. For example, the Use Smart compilation and Run Assembler during compilation settings are not affected.
