Vivado modifies locked core container files

I have a design that has been migrated across several revisions of Vivado and is currently under Vivado 2019.1.  The design incudes several IP blocks packaged into core container (.xcix) files.  I do not wish to update a couple of these cores to 2019.1 and have left these in the "locked" state.  Even though they are locked, Vivado appears to modify these files every time I open the project.  This is particularly annoying since I use git for version control and these large files are continually being touched by the toolset even though nothing has really changed.  Is there a way to force Vivado to leave these files alone?

 

Regards,

Michael

Re: Vivado modifies locked core container files

Sorry, thats a long standing wish,

    Vivado has zero concept of how to work with source control in GUI mode.

       Now in TCL, then , hay you would not use the locked / zipped IP, and all is possible,

 

but I prefer GUI for this sort of work I'm doing, and its a rela pain Vivado stamping every where....
