Hi,

Is there any difference between Clone and Save As options of PSoC Designer 5.0 for creating backup of any project?

Regads,

Hi,

Clone: This option is used to create same project with another device.

e.g.: you created one project with CY8C27443 and now you want to move to CY8C29466. You can "CLONE" your project for CY8C29466.

Save As: This option is used to save project with different name.

Cheers,

Brijesh

I prototyped an idea on the 29466. When I tried to clone it to a less expensvie 24423A, I ended up losing my ADCINC_1 which was on the 4th column (which does not exist) -- it doesn't show up in the design exploration view; but when I try to add a new ADCINC and renamed it to ADCINC_1, it gives me an error -- I think ADCINC_1 must still exist in some form in the cloned project??

Are there any specific issues/gotchas to watch out for when "downgrading" like this?

Thanks!

Try the "Build >> Clean " menu. That should remove any references to the missing user module. If this does not work, then this should be a bug with the PSoC Designer. Please let me know the results so that a bug report may be created to fix this.
