I'm not really sure of how I can properly explain this issue, so here's a screenshot. All I can say is that the writing falls over the menu's sections making impossible for me to select just a kind of decoration. I apologize for the bad english.

Did some testing on this and it seems some of the choices have a bigger font or something. Test both English and Italian version. For Italian it was two of the options for me, for the English I found one that's not as bad as the Italian but also not good.

I've been experiencing this issue since I discovered the filters which was probably several months ago.  It doesn't have a huge impact on the game, since my sims aren't decorating that often, but it's quite annoying whenever I do have them decorate.  I want to be able to jump to a specific type without having to scroll through them all.  This bug occurs with or without mods / cc installed.

 

I can select the filters for other lot features, such as fences.

However, for foundations, it's almost as if the title text is interfering with the filter functionality.  You can see the font is quite a bit larger here.  It defaults to display all types and none of the others are available for selection.

This is what the text looks like for spandrels.

@Alexmeteor @crinrict It looks like this has been fixed. I just brought up decorations and was able to filter the foundation options.  The text is much smaller now too.
