How do I delete a default or XNF viewpoint in Mentor 8 and above?
Go into the design's component directory in PLD_DMgr, and delete the "default" or "xnf" object.
(Its icon will be a folder with the letters "dvpt" inside.)
CD into the design's component directory in Unix (make sure your MGC_WD is unset or set to "."), then type:
("delete_object" is a Mentor-supplied program.)
To delete a different viewpoint (for example, "default"), replace that viewpoint's name for "xnf" as appropriate.
CD into the design's component directory in Unix. In this directory, you will see the following files:
xnf\ (empty directory)
xnf.dvpt_* (one or more, e.g., xnf.dvpt_3)
(Substitute "default" or other viewpoint name for "xnf" when appropriate.)
The directory and all files must be deleted to get rid of the viewpoint.
rm -r xnf xnf.Eddm_design_viewpoint.attr xnf.dvpt_*
