Schematic Editor Problem Quartus 21.4

In the schematic editor the "pins" on the block symbols (generated by Quartus) don't line up with the grid points in the schematic editor.  This makes it look like the interconnections are "skewed".  The connections appear to be made correctly but it's very annoying.

Where did you get this .bsf?  I've never seen this.  Dragging the symbol should make it align with the grid.

The  .bsf was created by Quartus when I instantiated a PLL.  Dragging the symbol does NOT make it align with the grid.

Is it only this symbol?  Maybe there's an "always align to grid" option you have turned off accidentally.

This is not the only symbol that acts this way.  I'm not aware of any "always align to grid" option but would be thrilled to hear about one if it exists.  I've looked through the Options menu and found nothing.

Hi,


Open the .bsf file, click and adjust the black solid line to make it align with the grip points.


Thanks,

Best Regards,

Thanks for the response.  I don't know what you mean by "click on the black solid line".  I've attached an archive of the project for you to inspect.  If you can make the grid points line up then we can talk further about how you did it.  If not, this is a bug in the bdf editor.

Hi,

 

Done make changes to pll_deser_top.bsf file. Check pll_align.bdf (image) and folder attached. Can also use arrow keys to adjust will be more easier.

I have looked at your changes.  pll_align.bdf is still off grid.  Nothing changed.  Still a problem.

Hi,

 

Sorry for misunderstanding your problem before. Now grips are aligned. Reattached the image and folder.

Unfortunately using the .bsf editor in Quartus 21.4 causes the program to crash and exit.  I get the following message whenever I try to edit the symbol in any way;

Hi,

 

I'm not having any issue at modifying the .bsf file in v21.4 both linux and window check image below. Can you try to relaunch the Quartus or include the .bsf file into Project Navigator first then only open to modify. Or may be try with newer version?

Currently internal team is working on the .bsf not aligned bug or you can wait for newest version release?

I've tried relaunching Quartus many times with no success.  I'm unclear about "include the .bsf in Project Navigator".  Glad to hear the bug is being fixed.

Go to Project Navigator -> Files -> include .bsf file -> open to modify

Or try to reinstall Quartus, I'm not getting any issue on editing .bsf file in v21.4 window check image attached.

Let me know if you have any further concern or update.

Since I'm unable to modify the .bsf myself, I'll have to wait until this bug is fixed in Quartus.
