Do you have a schematic yet?
If not, you will need to start a schematic and place these blocks onto your schematic sheets, You may want to create a heirarchael top sheet or not. Not sure what process you are following, meaning do you want to just create the fractures and use them as are? or do want to create fractures and use unravel feature in IOD?
Thanks for your answer... John,
1) I have the schematic.. see my picture (my mouse cursor is on blank block which represents FPGA IO... there I'd like to have my FPGA sheets)
2) I placed one of FPGA block onto my schematic sheetright now... see next picture
I placed.. was able to package, see that a next part numb was added ... package process finished successfully.
Then I did a forward annotation in Expedition and it finished with an error... don't kow part number... see my picture.
What to do now if the part number is not in my central library but is only in iCDB...??
3) fracture... I don't knoow exactly the meaning of fracture ... sorry
4) my process - I'd like to placed my symbols generated in IO designer and connect them to my design nets and go to layout...
I don't know why but I'm not able to package design in Dxd now.
Have to settup packager or placed IO symbol with some special option, properties..???
(I placed only one of generated symbol for now)
See my picture with result of packager.
Please, who knows the IO designer well to be able to help me?

If you are unfamiliar with the flow I would suggest you contact customer support so they can walk you through the necessary steps. It will be quicker than trying to do so on this forum.
It looks like you do not have a part built yet for this fpga, you probably have the symbols (fractures) but do not have a part (symbol and cell) in your library yet.
I would suggest contacting mentor support, perhaps Rob Morrow he is very good with IOD issues.

Good morning all,
everythink is working now.
I opened a service request (as Rob suggested - it was the best and fastest way at the end - thanks Rob ) and Michal Federek helped me with my problem very fast... it was very helpful!!
Great job MIchal!!! I very appreciate.
All you have answered me ... many thanks as well!!
