Today I discovered a curious issue when calculating material volumes. All my beams doubled their volume in the schedule. I tried converting them all to morphs and all of them were halved in volume to their correct amount. Why is this happening? It is creating quite a lot of problems for me!

The Same applies for Columns. You Have to either select Beam Parts or "Full" Beam, if you calculate volume you have to exclude one of them or you'll get duplicate values.
They actually "coexist" in the model.

TBH, this is a quite radical approach GS is taking to scheduling items. It is not clear at all this will happen when you create a schedule.
In my opinion, it should exclude double elements by default or simply not schedule them unless they are implicitly specified.
Hope GS realises that a lot of schedules created in Archicad are most likely issued with wrong quantities.
My wish would be to have a category of items to include/exclude in schedules or selection criteria etc.. Similar to how you have "All types", "3D types" and "2D types", perhaps "All subcomponents" or whatever naming convention GS chooses to use.
It is a bit of work to add a long list of exclusions every time you are building a schedule.
