I don't understand why the Devs still didn't fix this! We're reporting since Get to Work! It's been a long time GRRR

 

*Same glitch after Get Together. DEVS, PLEASE! WHAT YOU WAITING FOR?

Was just wanting to report the same, although I never expected a GTW issue to be fixed by GT. This needs to be fixed in a GTW or Base Game update, because not everybody has GT.

That's true. The dev team should've fixed this months ago. They've released several updates yet the issue remains unsolved.

I've got that too. Don't remember when it started exactly, but yea I guess around GTW. But not so long time ago, I was advised to remove everything from Options, Tray Folder, Screenshots/Videos/Custom music, Saves and Mods and when I ran the game with almost nothing, the bug dissappeared, but it came back when I put everything back. Maybe it's connected with one of these categories? Well, for sure not Mods cause I tried to play without them and there still was this bug.

I'll try that solution you suggested. I don't have any mods so I'll just clear the tray and see what happens. Thnks for the tip!

For anyone who wants to fix this by yourself:

 

1. Locate your "ReticulatedSplinesView" file in your "The Sims 4" folder (the same place for your mods folder)

2. Open the file with a hex editor (I use HxD which is free)

3. Search for "1D 10 01" and replace them all with "1D 10 04" (datetype is hex-values)

4. Save the file and start your game; the new item highlighting that was previously stuck should be gone

@elelunicy, I hold you completely responsible for the result in this image!

 

I must say I was quite surprised it found literally hundreds of instances of the value you have told us to replace!
