New Report Strategies must be created in the Vivado IDE Project Settings window, under Tool Settings and the subsection Strategies. Similarly, any existing user-defined Report Strategy can only be permanently modified in the Project Settings window. The pre-defined Report Strategies and the default association of a Run Strategy with a Report Strategy cannot be modified.
