[NEEDS INPUT] Previewing windows on diagonal walls showing default colour swatch

[ Edited ]
★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
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? PC 1.58.63.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Hovering windows on diagonal walls
What happens when the bug occurs? When hovering certain windows over diagonal walls the colour of the window reverts back to the default swatch colour once the window snaps to the wall (haven't tested all windows, but most I tried regardless of wall heigh this bug has occurred). Once the widow has been placed, the selected swatch is placed.
What do you expect to see? I expect to be able to preview what a window will look like on a diagonal wall without having to place it.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I have attached a small handful of screenshots of what appears when hovering the windows over a diagonal wall - all at full wall height.

What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All Expansions, most game packs, some stuff packs
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try to place an Island Living window on a diagonal wall
What happens when the bug occurs? If you choose a different colour from the swatches, it does not show up when you're "hovering" with the item on a diagonal wall. When you place the window though, it does become the correct colour.
What do you expect to see? That the "hovering" window when you're choosing placement matches the swatch colour
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
