@BBdoll3 Moved to bug reporting.

 

Do you not get the options on the book shelves anymore ? Are you using any mods ?

No, I don't see the options, and yes, I do have Mods.

Then please remove the mods and see if the issue persists.

@Tboyd81 Is this still an issue for you and if so, did you get that on all bookshelfs or only a certain kind ?

Try selling the bookshelf and buying the same one (new) after selling it Remember to sell(sell books via the build/buy catalogue you can drag books from shelf there but not in live play mode) all books in(the books in the bugged bookshelf are unable to be dragged from bookshelf)bookshelf once the buy option on bookshelf is available Replace sold books with new ones from buy menu Do the same to replace bugged computer

Bit unsure what to do with this as I've seen the option disappear in my own game and I have no idea what triggers it

 

Any feedback/ideas ?

I'm also having this problem. I'm going to try and buy a new bookshelf. See if that works.

★★★ Guide

As of the February 2016 patch this is still an issue.   I tested this with a new game after deleting my cache files.

 

  • This issue occurs in the premade household and it doesn't matter if you move a new family in, merge a family, or play one of the premades
  • This also occurs with refrigerators, toy boxes, and computers as well
  • Deleting the computer, bookcase, toy box, or refrigerators will allow Sims to be able to make purchases and use the items
  • This also affects items that go in inventories such as bars, musical instruments, tablets, food, toys, and books by preventing the objects from being dragged into inventories

What can you buy on the fridge ?

 

Also don't understand the last reference on your list ?

 

Does the option simply disappear after awhile and you can't buy and order anything ?
