baseline % window area in trace

Just wanted to check and see if there is an easier way in Trace to modify the base building to account for percent glazing in the baseline building.

My proposed building has 28% windows (from the buidling areas report in trace).  This is less than 40% so I need to use the 28% number.

In order to change this in trace, do I have to get in to each room and change the windows from quantity to 28%?

That seems like a lot of data entry - Is there an easier way?

Thanks

You don't need to do anything. That was only in LEED 2.2. In 90.1-2007, glass needs to be in the same proportions on all walls. You only need to reset room by room when the glass is GREATER than 40%.

If you needed to do this, I would suggest using excel and the component tree view.
