How do you remove all windows from your model? I created a building but now i want to evaluate windows in different walls. Im trying to clean up all windows and create the new ones.

There probably isn't a measure for that, but it shouldn't be too hard to create one. FLW.

Does the Add Remove Or Replace Windows measure still exist? I can't seem to find it in the BCL and it would be very helpful.

@MatthewSteen I also didn't find the Add Remove Or Replace Windows measure when searching BCL in OS App v2.9.1. Has this measure been renamed or removed from the BCL?

I improved @David Goldwasser's original Set Window to Wall Ratio by Facade measure to instead Add Remove Or Replace Windows which can be run using the Apply Measure Now feature in the OS app. If you find any bugs please submit an issue to my GitHub repository.

That didn't take long ... :)

Also did the same to the Add Overhangs by Projection Factor. That one is named Add Remove Or Replace Window Overhangs. Again, let me know if you find any bugs.

Beast Mode! (why is there a character minimum on comments?)

@MatthewSteen, the measure writing machine

@Amir Roth wish I had a measure to automate writing/testing measures. Perhaps you can add this to your intern's winter break project.
