Only edit the .inp file not the .pd2. Be aware though if you don't know 
how to read BDL you will likely have a lot of trouble; if you do know 
how to read BDL you will likely have some trouble. Cutting and pasting 
in eQUEST is tricky. One difficulty is that the bottom floor spaces have 
slab on grade or floors over a parking space, the middle floor spaces 
have interior floors and the top floor spaces have roofs so you have to 
add or delete the appropriate elements in each space. By the time you 
are done with that you will 9 times out of 10 have some errors and you 
might not even be able to run the model due to some random comma or .. 
or unspecified zone. By that time you will realize you would have been 
better off doing the custom window placement.
