You can create or open a project, and add source files to define your design. The Quick Start section of the Getting Started Page provides links for easy access to the following steps:
- Create a project using the New Project wizard.
- Open existing projects.
- Open example projects provided by Xilinx. Note: You can also open recently accessed projects from the Recent Projects list.
If you are working with a project, the tool automatically manages your design and keeps track of design file status. You can launch predefined design flow steps, and access results reports along the way.
