No VHDL Templates for HDL Designer

I am running HDL Designer for Windows 7 64 bit. Every time I try to create a block using with combined VHDL coding, the default template never shows up when the coding window opens and none of the changes I make to the block ever save. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?

Re: No VHDL Templates for HDL Designer



Are you using the latest 2010.3 release? If not I would suggest you try  that one. If designpad opens navigate to the Document->Language menu  and make sure VHDLXXXX is selected. Next click on the View menu and  check that the Language Templates is ticked. On the bottom left of your  editing screen you should see the templates.


Regarding the saving issue, can you provide some more info, do you get  an error message, is the file/folder you are using read-only?


I would also suggest you contact your Mentor/Distributer office to see  if one of the engineers can do a webex/gotomeeting with you. This  normally fixes issues quite quickly.


Good luck,
