Unsupported Revit Categories in Schedules and Material Takeoffs

It is important to know that Revit does not support all Revit categories when creating Multi-Categories Schedule or Material Takeoffs. Look at the list of supported categories here.

Not knowing that may lead to omissions and wrong quantities.

The following two tables are listing unsupported Revit Categories in Revit Material Takeoffs and Multi-Categories Schedules.
