AR# 5439: M1.5i EPIC - Cannot edit block/CLB/macro, even in read-write mode.
M1.5i EPIC - Cannot edit block/CLB/macro, even in read-write mode.
Keywords: macro, EPIC, edit, CLB
General Description: I am editing a CLB in Read-Write mode, but can't change the attributes or the CLB itself. When I open the "Edit Block" window, it switches to "View-Only".
The block that is being edited belongs to a macro; to edit the CLB contents, you must first unbind the macro. To do this, follow these steps:
1. In the EPIC list, select MACS ALL, for all macros. 2. Select the macro containing the CLB that needs to be edited. 3. Click the Edit menu in the main EPIC window. 4. Select "Unbind" from the Edit menu. 5. Highlight the CLB to be modified. 6. Select "Edit Block".
NOTE: This will only work if you are already in a Read-Write mode. If you are not in this mode, select the "Misc" menu and click "Post Main Attrs". Then, change the mode to Read-Write.
