Output Meter Reporting

Question: Is there a way to select all meters on output report ( file just by adding only one object? Currently, I have to go into IDF Editor, select "Output:Meter:MeterFileOnly" and add an object for each meter I want to be included on the output file. If you have 200 or so meters, and want to selected them all, the process of adding one meter object at a time and selecting one meter name from the drop down at a time is time consuming. I was wondering if there is any better way to generate this meters file.

Answer: Put Output:VariableDictionary,IDF; into your IDF file.
Do a simple run. (1 design day for example)

Open the .mdd file and copy those into your IDF file. (It's automated in IDF editor to be able to copy that).

You may have to change the Output:Meter to Output:MeterFileOnly but that should make it easier.
