2017-11-08 14:07:35 -0600 marked best answer When importing gbxml from IESVE to OpenStudio, is there a way to generate zones from spaces?

I have a gbxml file generated by IESVE (v2017). In this file there are a bunch of spaces, but only one thermal zone. I recognize that this is probably a flaw in the way IESVE is generating the gbxml. (I tried setting up thermal zones in IES and exporting but still only one thermal zone, containing every space in the building, is present in the gbxml.)

Is there a measure or some other way to automatically generate one thermal zone per space inside OpenStudio? I know that I could interject in the gbxml to add these, but if someone has already solved it in OpenStudio that might be less inconvenient.
