Dear Community; I would like to report not a bug, but an unsuitable selection of Default values in EnergyPlus Daylighting:Control Class! When you define a new object in “Daylighting: Controls”, all fields related to reference points (up to reference point 10) have a fixed value of 1 and 500 lux for their fractions and setpoints, respectively! Whereas in this case, the user must manually delete every single value of the other fields if he/she has only defined a reference point, otherwise, he/she will get a severe error! I think it would be better if only the first reference point had some value (1) and the fields related to the rest of the reference points would be empty by default.

I think this is the same issue as was reported here: https://github.com/NREL/EnergyPlus/is...

@JasonGlazer Yes, it's the same. I had not seen this before. Thank you.
