After installing the pool patch, I am no longer able to drag dishes directly from the fridge inventory to the trash (or to another fridge). I can place them in Sims' inventories just fine but fridges and bins don't get hightlighted when things are dragged over them. I first have to take things out of the fridge and THEN I can place them in the trash just fine. I have tested this with all available fridges and trash cans and they all behave the same way.
Are you using any mods in your game ? Does this only happen in an existing game or also if you start a new one for testing purposes ?
I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
