To edit your IP in an existing project:

  1. Open the existing project from which the IP was originally created and then, from the Tools menu, select Create and Package New IP.
    Note: This option only exists for projects with an associated IP-XACT component.xml file.
    A dialog box opens, as shown in the following image, and asks if you want to overwrite the existing definition.

  2. With the Package IP window open, add, remove, or modify the source files in the project or adjust settings in the Packaging Steps. For more information on each of the packaging steps, see Packaging IP.
  3. After you complete the modifications to your custom IP, select the Review and Package step in the Package IP window and select Re-Package IP.
Important: When you package a custom IP, the IP definition file (xml) is placed at a location relative to the project source files. Add the files to your custom IP in a directory below the IP definition file (xml); this ensures that the newly merged files are added as relative paths instead of absolute paths.
