Good afternoon guys, I'm trying to create a schematic block file of the program I made, but the option appears as "disabled". I am using the Quartus Prime Pro Edition IDE, I have tried to generate this file for many different projects and this option is not always available. Does anyone know if anything needs to be enabled in the Quartus Prime settings? I used the same programs in Quartus II 13.0 and it worked. Apparently the problem is occurring when I use the prime version.
Below is an image to illustrate the unavailability situation.
your intended feature is"Create Symbol files from current file" might be removed from Intel Quartus prime pro edition but it it still available in Lite & Standard edition of the Quartus tool, please refer the below screenshot of Q18.1std edition.
In fact, here none of the feature is active under 'Create/Update' option for Quartus Prime Pro edition & it seems to be a bug, let me check with team internally & it may take some time to fix that issue.
You can't in Pro. The feature does not exist. As mentioned, you could install Standard to do this, which is a pain, but it would work.
Thank you for the reply. May I know if this feature doesn't exist, (other than doing it on the standard version), how can I go about building my project if I needed to design a huge project with many modules that contain my own VHDL code? I am using an Agliex F-series board, so I can't use the standard edition.
