Hello to all, can I set the inside/outside SURFACE convection algorithm for individual zones in Open Studio and if so where and how? (I don't mean the zone inside/outside convection algorithm that I can set for the thermal zone in Sketch up). Thank you for any help and hint. Kind regards

I think you might be confused. The zone inside/outside convection algorithm sets the convection algorithm for every surface adjacent to that zone. It's a convenience method for setting the algorithm for all the zone's surfaces at once, rather than having to set the algorithm individually for each surface.

okay, thank you for answering so fast. I also assumed something like that.
