eQUEST - "default daylighting" -- cool feature discovery

I made a really cool eQUEST discovery the other night...

In version 3.63, if you right click on any space in the 2D view (Building
Shell or Internal Loads tab) and hit ?Default Daylighting? eQUEST will
calculate how much of each zone is available for daylighting control, will
set up and properly position the daylighting sensor in the zone and will
set the controlled fraction of the lighting correctly ? plus give you a
pretty, yellow indication of the fraction of the zone under daylighting

I don't know how long this feature has been available but I only just
found it and thought it was worth sharing.

Good to know.

I'm curious to see if anyone has comments on how photo sensor placement
happens at the workplane level looking up in the energy and daylighting
models but in reality most photo sensors are ceiling mounted looking out of
the window.
