Is there a report or measure to print an OpenStudio model plan view showing zones, zone names, areas, and loads? The only way I know to do this is to take screenshots of each floor of my model, then manually type in all the information. This is very time consuming for a model with around 200 zones.

This post references an OpenStudio SketchUp plugin user script that creates a CSV space type report with much of the information you want. If you are comfortable with SketchUp's API you could create text labels right in SketchUp with the information you want to show. There is a user script that creates SketchUp scenes for each building story and setups a plan view.

@macumber's View Data measure is described on this post. You could modify this, or use as is if you can get the data you want to see as zone time-series data, even if the timestep is annual (e.g. single time step).
