    The highlight is unrelated.  It's probably the highlight from selecting the face into the selection box.  'debug' entities are shown in red, not orange.

    Your function isn't returning anything, which is why 'getTRY' also isn't anything.  You'll need to actually return the Query:

    // I took out the 'context' parameter because it is not used.
    export function getInputFaces(features is FeatureList)
        return qEntityFilter(qCreatedBy(features), EntityType.FACE);
    // this should highlight your entities in RED and print something more useful to the console
    const getTRY = getInputFaces(definition.features);
    debug(context, getTRY);


    EDIT: fixed code block.
