Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Sony Playstation 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? 18.104.22.16800
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All available
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Have a free sample of earbuds given to your sim, or buy earbuds for your sim from the computer.
What happens when the bug occurs? You can not sell the earbuds from the inventory or drag them out of the inventory. The only interaction is to have the sim place the earbuds into the world so you can sell them, or have the sim die with them in the inventory and sell them from the household inventory.
What do you expect to see? Being able to sell the earbuds from the inventory and being able to drag them to another sims inventory or into the world without issue.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? On console - never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure
You can't sell the earbuds from the inventory, you can't drag them. Usually when you try to sell or drag the earbuds, then you can no longer select anything else in the inventory to drag unless you close out the inventory and open it again.

Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
just tried this. if i click on the earbuds in a Sim's inventory, then on 'place in world', it works. but dragging them directly (i.e. to a table, the floor, etc.) doesn't work for me either.

Earbuds have always been like that (ie couldn't be sold from a sim's personal inventory), I just thought it was by design. With the new multi select option you can now sell earbuds from a sim's personal inventory (see screenshot). Before that I would do as mentioned above, have a sim place it in the world and then sell it from build mode.
