Custom Window Placement in BEopt

I am wondering if there exists any options for manually placing windows and doors within BEopt. I realize that windows are typically modeled as either an absolute area of the facade, a fraction of each facade's exposed wall area, or a percentage of exposed wall areas for each facade. I am simply wanting to custom specify the exact dimensions and wall placement location of windows and doors in each unit of a modeled multifamily building.

Is this possible?

Unfortunately there is not currently a way to size/locate individual windows and doors in BEopt.

In the long term, as BEopt transitions to OpenStudio, this is a feature we plan to support.
