[NEEDS INPUT] Locked Whims Change After Entering Manage Worlds

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

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?
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Lock whims, then enter manage worlds. Switch worlds, enter household management or enter another building.
What happens when the bug occurs? All my sims locked whims are cleared, showing new whims.
What do you expect to see? Locked whims staying locked.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. GF patch

Every time I enter manage worlds from a household, all the whims that I have locked are gone. This happens in new saves and old, with or without mods/CC. Frankly, I'm getting tired of it, as it has been going on more or less since the GF patch. It makes rotational play really hard, as I cannot seem to avoid manage worlds to do so. The only time I can even enter manage worlds is when I first start up the game. Otherwise, whims are wiped.

I'm not sure that it's necessarily a bug. I think it may just be an oversight. But I agree, that it shouldn't be that way, and it's incredibly annoying to lose whims any time you need to add a lot to the world.
