Once a BDC is added to or created within a top-level block design diagram, BDC cannot be directly edited from the diagram of the top-level block design. All further changes to the content of a block design container must happen within the source block design of that BDC. The user has to open up the .bd source of BDC, make changes (such as adding or removing IP blocks), validate the design, and save the source block design.

Note: To change a BDC, double-click the BD source in the Sources window. Alternatively, right-click on the BDC instance in the top-level BD diagram and select Open Source. Once the BDC changes are synced, the output products have to be generated on the top-level design, but not on the source block BD.
