The following steps are to set Packager default behavior in a project. To set the Packager options:

  1. From Tools > Settings > Project Settings, select IP > Packager.

  2. Set the following options in Default Values:
    Sets the vendor name when packaging a new IP. For example, the top domain name of a company.
    Sets the associated library for the IP. This category, along with Vendor are used with the IP name to create a unique identifier.
    Specifies the categories in the IP catalog in which to place the IP. For example, /UserIP.
    IP Location
    Specifies the location to use for your packaged IP.
    Note: If necessary, you can override the default values during the IP packaging process.
  3. In the After Packaging section of Automatic Behavior, select the options you want:
    Create archive of IP
    This option automatically creates an archive (ZIP format) of the IP. For information on how to set the location of a ZIP file, see Archiving an IP Project.
    Add IP to the IP catalog of the current project
    Adds the current IP to the IP catalog.
    Close IP Packager window
    Closes the Package IP window automatically when IP packaging is complete.
  4. In the Edit IP in IP Packager, select Delete project after packaging to remove the iterative editing project after the IP is re-packaged.
  5. In File Extensions to Filter on Add Directory, add extensions (for example, TXT) to automatically filter when selecting a directory to include in a File Group when packaging an IP.
