I believe that in the eQUEST wizard if your defined zone walls are even
the slightest bit off from what you defined as the building footprint,
they will not be recognized as exterior walls. You could go through the
wizard to correct this, create a new exterior wall in the detailed
design mode and delete the interior wall, or go to the .inp file to
change the wall type. You can't easily change a wall type from interior
to exterior within eQUEST.

Subject: [Bldg-sim] eQuest - converting these interior walls to

Hello all again. 

I've imported a CAD drawing, using schematic design mode I drew the
custom foot print and then the custom individual zones. I have a couple
of exterior walls that show up as interior walls, even after a lot of
tweaking. Any suggestions for converting these interior walls to
exterior walls (simply)?

Thanks again.
