Using OpenStudio and recently updated from 1.13 to 2.1.0, and the Result Summary - or Results Viewer - is drastically different. It used to have a nice graphical interface, with results easy to obtain. Now it is different. Any idea as to why? Is there a way to restore the old OpenStudio Results Summary GUI?

The OpenStudio results summary is still available, but no longer runs "automagically" in version 2.x. Add it to your workflow here:

Once it's added, you can switch between the default EnergyPlus report (and other customized reports you might add) from the OpenStudio Application's results tab. PAT allows you to look at this reports for individual data points on its run tab, but you'll need to add them to your data points as a measure option.

You do not seem to be able to switch between them in the latest release. Jonathan is having the same issue, see below.

Ah. I think I understand the issue. The reporting measure is no longer built into the app and run automagically. You need to add it to your workflow on the scripts tab. Updating my answer.

Do you mean OpenStudio Results such as the image below?

I'm having the same issue, but I've just been running the OpenStudio Results measure from the Building Component Library.

Hey Jonathan - yes, I mean the Openstudio Results. Thanks for the reference to the measure. Will use that as a workaround for this version.
