Copying hierarchical blocks doesn't update block names inside

Something I stumbled upon right now... If you have a hierarchical block in a block diagram and you copy-paste it, it will update and renumber its name (prbs_0 to prbs_1 in my case):

But... blocks inside aren't renamed! So they are duplicated. What generates this zero-helping error message:

Hopefully someone takes note to improve that (both the renaming and the unhelpful error message) for the future.

For the time being, if you copy-pasted blocks, remember to manually change names (suffixes) inside the new one.

Hi @joancab ,

Which Vivado version are you using?

Basically block design cell names are made unique with CONFIG.Component_Name property of block design cells. Even though block name appears same for newly pasted hierarchical block, it is this property which differs. Can you check at your end for uniqueness of this property for copied bd cells ?

Ashish
