I updated to Vivado 2013.3 and I am now forced to rebuild the whole project (takes a long time) every time after I exit Vivado and then I start it again and reopen the project.
Here is a screenshot showing the built “Complete status” project on Vivado exit:
Here is a screenshot showing the status after starting Vivado and reloading the project:
Is there any fix or workaround for this issue?

Thanks for the quick reply Deepika.
There are no changes to the project or source files. I just implement the design and exit Vivado.

No, I haven't saved explicitly the project. So far, any changes I made to the project seem to be automatically saved.
E.g., I add a new vhd source file, buld the project successfully, create Xilinx binary image and exit Vivado. On exit, Vivado doesn't ask if I want to save the project because I have changed it.
Next time when I start Vivado, I see the added file and all project changes as expected. Why do I need to save the project?

I created brand new design, generated IP cores, added my source files, synthesised and implemented all until I got the “Complete” status.
Next I exit Vivado, started it again and reloaded the project. The status now was “Out-of-date”.
Started rebuilding the project and Vivado went through rebuilding everything including all IP cores. This is just a bug in Vivado 2013.3. It shouldn’t force rebuilding when nothing has been changed.

If you are using version control system, I would suggest to go through the recommendations at http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/application_notes/xapp1165.pdf
Hope this helps.
