I have a small zone with 2 windows EnergyPlus. I`ve added 2 reference points to calculate daylighting. When I simulate I am getting errors for missing required property `daylighting_reference_point_name` for control_data 2, 3 to 9. How do I solve this?

What tool did you use to add the reference points? It seems that the Daylighting:Controls object is trying to reference a total of 9 reference points, but the Reference Point Name input field is only set for the first.
