Events do not match screen/page names on which they actually occur

Hello everyone,


Howcome that in the Behavior > Events > Screens report, when you add a secondary dimension "Event category", the events listed for a given screen do not match the actual events that should occur on that screen? The same is true if you add a secondary dimension "Screen name" in the Behavior > Events > Top events report.


For example: I have Screen 1 where there is only one button with the tracked event "Button click" and I have Screen 2 where there are 3 other tracked events, let's say, "Event 1", "Event 2" and "Event 3".


Now in both reports described above I see something like:

Screen name - Event category - Total events

Screen 1 - Event 3 - 4

Screen 1 - Event 2 - 3

Screen 2 - Button click - 1


How is it possible to see "Button click" event matched with the Screen 2 where there is no button to click or "Event 3" and "Event 2" on Screen 1 where there are no such events being tracked?


Thank you.
