A neat feature of the tool I use (ICX) is that I can take my design, select
the area, nets etc that I am interested in, select them and then do "delete
unselected". This allows me to experiment in the area of interest with
everything else removed.
A not so neat feature I discovered recently is that for the purpose of
automatic synthesis I have a net connected to a BGA. I need to use a
different VIA on the "dog-bone" of the BGA to the vias I want to use outside
the confines of the BGA pacakage. With ICX I only seem to be able to specify
one via for synthesis. I am awaiting a response on this from the Vendor.
