Impossible to do ECO changes on DE1-SoC (Cyclone V)

To the admins: sorry, I just realised this should be in "Quartus II and EDA Tools Discussion". Please move it there if appropriate. 

 

Hi, 

 

I have a very simple design for a Cyclone V SoC on a DE1-SoC board - a minimal Qsys system based on the Computer System provided within the Altera University Program but with just the interface to the HPS, the GPIOs to the board LEDs and 7 segments displays and an extremely simple custom accelerator. The system compiles and works; however, any time I try to do even the simplest ECO change, like changing one bit in an LUT mask or moving a flip flop within the same logic element, I get 100+ errors such as: 

 

Error (129001): Input port ENA on atom "Computer_System:The_System|Computer_System_ARM_A9_HPS:arm_a9_hps|Computer_System_ARM_A9_HPS_hps_io:hps_io|Computer_System_ARM_A9_HPS_hps_io_border:border|hps_sdram:hps_sdram_inst|hps_sdram_p0:p0|hps_sdram_p0_acv_hard_memphy:umemphy|hps_sdram_p0_acv_hard_io_pads:uio_pads|hps_sdram_p0_altdqdqs:dq_ddio[3].ubidir_dq_dqs|altdq_dqs2_acv_connect_to_hard_phy_cyclonev:altdq_dqs2_inst|dqs_config_gen[0].dqs_config_inst", which is a cyclonev_dqs_config primitive, is not legally connected and/or configured

where Computer_System:The_System is my Qsys top level module. All the errors are related to pins in Computer_System:The_System|Computer_System_ARM_A9_HPS:arm_a9_hps|Computer_System_ARM_A9_HPS_hps_io:hps_io|Computer_System_ARM_A9_HPS_hps_io_border:border|hps_sdram:hps_sdram_inst|hps_sdram_p0:p0|hps_sdram_p0_acv_hard_memphy:umemphy|hps_sdram_p0_acv_hard_io_pads:uio_pads, even though my ECO changes are always applied to logic belonging to other modules (my accelerator). I'm doing the ECO changes by editing the design from the Chip Planner and clicking on "Check and save all netlist changes". Is there something I'm missing? 

 

Thanks. 

 

Best,
