DVT SystemVerilog IDE User Guide
Rev. 19.1.13, 25 April 2019

38.4 Use Cases

Using the same settings across all workspace and projects can be achieved by configuring the corresponding file and adding it in the user location (where $DVT_USER_SETTINGS points to).

To share the settings with other users you must put the setting files in a common location and set $DVT_COMMON_SETTINGS to that location.

A recommended work-flow for sharing any type of settings with other users is:

  1. Start DVT in a clean workspace

  2. Customize preferences

  3. Define run configurations, compile waivers, etc. on a reference project and move the corresponding files in the user location (available under DVT-Settings/user)

  4. Close DVT and move the files from the user location to a common location where all users can point the $DVT_COMMON_SETTINGS system variable
