The Vivado IDE provides predefined window layouts to facilitate various tasks in the design process. The layout selector (shown in the following figure) enables you to easily change window layouts. Alternatively, you can change layouts using the Layout menu in the menu bar.

Figure 1. Layout Selector

Use the predefined layouts as follows:

Default Layout
Analyze your design with a minimum set of windows.
I/O Planning
Define I/O placement constraints and place ports.
Note: When working with I/O planning projects, the I/O Planning view layout is called the Default Layout.
Define Pblocks, manage partitions, and perform hierarchical floorplanning.
Define debug nets and configure debug cores.
Timing Analysis
Run timing reports and analyze timing.
Open the ECO Navigator to make engineering change orders (ECOs) to the post-synthesis netlist.
Note: The ECO layout is only available when you open a design checkpoint (DCP). For more information on the ECO flow, see this link in the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Implementation (UG904) and this link in the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Programming and Debugging (UG908).
Tip: You can also create custom view layouts that meet your specific requirements as described in Configuring Custom View Layouts.
