Problems with Symbol File

I am trying to create a block symbol file but I am having a lot of problems. I think the program started to work at first, but after a couple of tries, it's not working anymore.

#1: When ever I go to create a new block, and I choose the file I want the block/symbol to be in, it would say that if I wanted to replace the file and I say yes. It would then say block was successfully created. I go to components, and it's not there. It's doing that every time, even if I create new templates.

#2: Whenever I go to the file I used to create the block, it says I cannot open the file. This is messing up all my assignments and I can't afford to lose anymore data.

I have attached a picture of my problem and have it opened in notes(read another post). The file "ugh" is just an and gate with the inputs and outputs. "Lab4GateArray" is where I am trying to create the "ugh" block.

Hi,

 

What I can see from the notepad is just a blank rectangle. I think you are missing the input and output ports connections.

Things to take note when creating .bsf file:

  1. Connect primitive to input and output ports
  2. Go to file and Create Symbol Files for Current File
  3. Last, insert the created .bsf file to your .bdf file

May refer to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6iYVo8p9A0

Below is and gate with input and output ports .bsf code:

Hi James,


Do you have any further update or Should I consider that case to be closed?
