If I change the illuminance (lux) scale, the plot doesn't change. No colors for any grid points change. First post so won't let me upload screenshot. I did hit "Apply".

I got the same problem right now (March 2017).

I use OpenStudio Version 1.14

Maybe someone know where I can ask a request to solve this problem?

Thank you,

This is a known issue, and it's on the List of Things to Fix ( But it's a long list.

Is this in Results Viewer? If you change the (max/min) values in the "scaling" area of the Illuminance Map settings dialog, this will rescale the legend, but the low and high colors, as well as the gradient, do not change -- merely what the colors represent in terms of quantity (lux in this case).

Update: Turns out this is a known issue.

Yes, this is in the ResultsViewer. I can upload a pic now so see edit above. Changing the scale did not change what the colors represent in terms of quantity (lux).

Uh, I see what you mean (and duplicated over here). Wow. We'll file this as a bug.

I've run into the same problem...just wondering if there has been any change since the date of this discussion. Thank you.
