I assume you are not using the FPGA I/O optimizer tool. It provides an export feature for FPGA parts.
Here's an approach that should work for any local symbol:
- From the design entry tool, select the Databook window and then select the Symbol View tab
- Select the [local symbols] partition
- Select the symbol(s) you want to export, right-click, and then select Export symbol(s)
- Choose a folder and then click OK
- From the library manager tool, open a library and then select a Symbols partition
- Right-click and then select Import Symbols...
- Browse to the folder you created from the design entry tool then select the sym folder
- Select the symbol file(s) you want to import and then click Open
Hope this helps!
Thank you for your email.
I have already copied the local fragmented FPGA symbols from xDxDatabook to
the CL by first exporting from xDx to a folder, them importing to a new
partition within the CL using xDM, and then creating a new part which
the multiple symbols from the symbol partition.
It would have been nice to have avoided the need to create a separate symbol
partition in the CL first, but that's a minor point.
