I only recently moved from ISE 12.4 to 13.4 and I'm very pleased with the new
ReLaunch feature of ISIM. Restarting ISIM after changing the design code was
always a headache before this. Until now I have worked around it using
"custom" .wcfg files, but even that was painful because I had to change the
simulation properties each time I moved from one test bench to another
(I like to create test benches for sub-modules). I also typically "float" the
waveform window, which meant more things to close and re-open after
each code change.
It would still be nice to fix the Project Navigator GUI to allow individual settings
for each test-bench in the ISIM properties, rather than making a single global
setting for the "custom" .wcfg file. Alternately defaulting to saving the waveform
configuration as <test_bench_name>.wcfg would solve this issue.
