The thing that annoys me the most about Quartus is the Pin Planner. It is already a slow tedious process of manually selecting pins with a mouse using the drop-down list but the most annoying thing of all is when this bug kicks in and it overwrites what you have painstakingly selected:
See above - I assigned sd_A at the bottom of the list and then PIN_33 became assigned to 5 of the pins I had already selected.
This is the second time this has happened to me in the past 5 minutes and I am about to start hacking files manually to avoid this happening again.
I'm using Quartus II Version 14 Build 186 Web Edition. Does anybody know if this has been fixed in one of the later versions? I started with Version 10 and it has been around since then.
I check in the KDB database,
It does not seems to be a known issue.
Is that possible for you to upgrade to the latest Quartus release 20.1lite/std? What device that you were using?
I don't think I've ever seen this, but you could just double-click (or maybe triple-click because double-click brings up the pop-up list) the Location field and type in the pin number instead of using the pop-up lists.
I didn't realise you could triple click
I have installed the latest Quartus (version 20). May be a while before I use the pin planner again but I'll be sure to keep an eye on it and update this thread with my findings.
