[Bldg-sim] eQuest multi-level spaces

Hello all,

I am modeling a four floor building in which there are many multi-level
spaces. Each floor of the building has a different footprint and I have
created a shell for each.  Some of the multi-level spaces are two floors
high, some three, and some four.  The lowest level may start at the 1st,
2nd, or 3rd floor.  When I create a multi-level space with the 1st floor
as the lowest level things work fine, the 3-D geometry shows up as it
should.  When I create a similar space in which the lowest floor is not
the 1st floor then the roof and walls do not go up to the top level of
the space.


I am working in the wizard and using the zone characteristics button
(wizard screen 2 of 25 of the shell component) to modify the thermal
zones.  In the first instance (when the geometry works well), I am given
the opportunity to input the conditioned height.  In the second (things
don't work well), the conditioned height input box does not appear.


Can this be fixed within the wizard or do I have to fix it in detailed
mode?  If this were just one space I wouldn't bother to ask.  But it is
many, many spaces.
