I am following the instruction of the tutorial on how to to start a project. However, whenever I arrive at the page 10 where , point 5 where I select the board , I get a different naming in the Hierarchy tab:

here is from my Quartus Prime Standard :

Here is the tutorial:

You posted a link to your local machine, so I can't see what document you are looking at.

But what information did you put in on the first page of the New Project Wizard?  That is where you specify the name of the project and the name of the top-level design entity.

You can also change this in Assignments->Settings->General and enter "light " in Top-Level Entity. I take that your problem has been solved and I shall put this to a close pending. Please post a response in the next 15 days to allow me to continue to support you.

Hi,


That is your project top-level design entity name. Did you enter "light" for that?
