I've been learning how to use PSoC by the tutorial vids. In lesson 4 I encountered a problem, when it came to the hardware connection between the switch and the LED.
The error is: "Pin guidance unavailable. Pin cannot be placed at X. Pin cannot be used for routed connections." for both the input and the output pin as soon as i connect them by wire in my TopDesign.
The goal would be to directly turn on the LED by pressing the switch as described in the tutorial.
Is this a configuration problem or is my board not able to do hardware connections (which I doubt).
I'm using PSoC Creator 4.4 and the CY8CKIT-149 PSoC 4100S Plus Prototyping Kit, CY8C4147AZI-S47564.
I attached the project.
I'd be very grateful for an explanation of this error and even more for a solution.

PSoC 4 MCU
I have no experience with 4100S Plus device. However, I do know it uses Smart I/O inter-connections and this is very different from the DSI inter-connections of other PSoC's (such as CY8C4245). I would suggest you review the technical documentation of 4100S Plus to learn about Smart I/O. The datasheet can only take you a little distance. You might also look at the code examples included with Creator installation. Maybe something useful will be found there.
Also, I saw your other question about using the clock component. I suspect this is a similar issue with Smart I/O vs DSI. Maybe someone from Cypress will respond with a better answer for you.
And search for Smart I/O on Cypress site. There are many good examples.
Good luck with your project.
