You can modify the severity for most messages, including:

  • Promote all messages to errors except for status messages.
  • Demote warnings and critical warnings.
You cannot demote error messages. Use caution when demoting critical warnings, because these messages flag problems that might result in errors later in the design flow.

To change the severity of a message:

  1. Right-click the message, and select Message Severity > Set Message Severity from the popup menu.
  2. In the Set Message Severity dialog box (shown in the following figure), set the severity.
Note: To reset the message to the default severity, right-click the message, and select Message Severity > Unset Message Severity from the popup menu.

You can also modify message severity using the set_msg_config Tcl command. For example, the following Tcl command upgrades message ID Place 30-12 to a Critical Warning:

set_msg_config -id {Place 30-12} -new_severity {CRITICAL WARNING}
