    Default Updating Block or Symbol File from HDL

    Hi,
    Is there a way to update the pins on an existing symbol or update the I/O table in an existing block from a VHDL file?

    Here's what I'm trying to do:
    I have a top level block diagram with symbols and blocks. I used the blocks to generate the original skeleton for my VHDL files. Later I had to add and remove a few ports in my VHDL file. Now I would like to update the block in my block diagram using the VHDL file. Is this possible?

    Is it possible to do this for symbols?

    Thanks

    I believe you'll just have to create a new .bsf file from the updated code.

    Unfortunately that destroys any symbol customization I have made. I typically just end up adding or removing ports. I thought there might be a way to update the symbol (add/remove pins) from HDL. I guess that's not possible.
