Encountered this bug for certain BCL scripts when running them in OS 1.14.0, which have the option to apply the measure to the entire building (Entire Building) or Space Types (All Space Types): The dropdown field The dropdown field in the image is arranged alphabetically, but it defaults to the entire building. If I run the script as is, it sets an LPD of 1 W/sf to the entire building, even though it shows that it applies only to spaces with the Apartment Space Type. If I scroll down once and click on any of the options, it works fine. This looks confusing. Can the functionality be changed so that it displays the Entire building option as the default too, like the previous version? Thanks again!

Thanks for filing the issue. I believe to get around this for now may be to switch away from the current choice, and then to your desired choice. This should store the requested value vs. relying on the measure's default value.
