Product: The Sims 4
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 220.127.116.110
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? RG, Grim's Ghoulish Guitar, Holiday Pack
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Catch a new fish and get a notification message that there is more information about the fish in the notebook. Click on the button "Open Notebook" in the notification panel.
What happens when the bug occurs? Nothing happens, and the notebook doesn't open
What do you expect to see? The notebook to open and show the fishing list with the new fish information
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Patch 18.104.22.1680 (June 18, 2019)
The "Open Notebook" button in the notification panel does not open the notebook when a new fish has been caught. Opening the notebook via the phone does work, and the new fish information is added correctly.
Edited to add that notifications about new plants / information have the same issue. It appears that the button to "Open Notebook" in the notification menu is broken, regardless of what prompted the notification in the first place.
Edit #2: July 17, 2019 patch seems to have fixed this for me. I am able to open the notebook from the notification log now.

Since the 7/16/2019 patch, I have successfully opened the notebook from the notification log. It looks like this was fixed for me in the latest patch. I did delete the thumbnailcache.package file and repair the game after the patch.
Could use some verification from others. It appears to have been ninja-fixed!
Hi @Sessentasis - the 6-18-2019 patch moved the notebook to a tab at the bottom on the phone. It works to open it from there in my game. Check to make sure it works for you

There are some reports this is working but I can confirm it is not working for me.
Game version 22.214.171.1240 / Win7 / vanilla folder and never use CC or mods.
I spent quite a while trying to explain this via a chat. He finally understood what I was asking when I sent pictures.
Short version - notebook works from phone. Clicking on the notification should open the notebook but does not.
I suspect this might be related to the change in notebook location on the phone menu.
Doesn't work for me either, though going to the phone and opening the notebook does. Doesn't work with the new interaction of finding out about a fish from a conversation either.
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.
