I have a quite complex first floor where is lots of different levels and that's why there is only a one actual story level for that and everything else is just adjusted with negative bottom values.

Problem is that in schedules windows and doors looks like they are in wrong level. Schedule shows automatically the story where the object is (so if the bottom is negative, it shows one story below what it should be.

Is there any way to fix this?

If you are not using those extra stories at all then delete them completely.
If they are not there then they can't be listed in a schedule.

I believe there is a problem (bug?) where if the door/window has more than half its height above or below its actual home storey it will be listed in the storey above or below.

I don't think there is a way around this - I don't have Archicad with me at the moment.
There is an old post here about it somewhere - I will see if I can find it.

Here you go. ... p?p=255375

I am not sure how helpful the link is to the suggested solution - it seems to be referring to version 15 for the registry fix.
Anyway read through the help article to see what else it says.
I think you will need to read from "Solution - (an important caveat)" section.

Thanks. That's really the same problem, it looks like that if the wall bottom value is more than half of the door height, then the story level changes in schedules.

I read the link which was in the other thread. Those settings has been change since the version 15-16 but changing the Show on stories and Floor plan Display setting of the host wall and the window seems to fix the problem (just randomly tested different combinations).
