You can use the Selection Rules settings to control the secondary elements that are selected when you select a primary object. When selecting an object, associated or connected objects might also be selected. For example, selecting a Pblock might also select the netlist cells assigned to the Pblock. Selecting a port object might also select the pin object of the port. To open the Settings dialog box, select Tools > Settings, and then click the Selection Rules category.

The default selection rules enable Vivado IDE to operate in the most efficient manner. You can change these selection rules if you have trouble selecting a specific object. To change a selection rule, enable or disable the Set check box next to the rule:

  • When you enable a selection rule, both the primary From object type and secondary To object types are selected.
  • When you disable a selection rule, only the primary From object type is selected.
