Currently, items by function and build item(specifically flooring and wall patterns) are the issue. Objects by room are working

I figured out you have to repeatedly switch the cursor toggle which is the select button. That makes it go back to how it used to be but it reverts to cursor after placing things down

Same here can't flick through object items, customisation either. Happened just after the new patch. Please fix this!!! It's nearly impossible to play

Exactly I can’t get build mode to scroll it’s driving me crazy not being able to get other build objects I need. I really hope they listen to the fans and change this.

@EA_Solaire I am beyond irritated! I’ve played sims for going on 15 years. I’ve been playing on PS4 for the past 5-6. With that said, I’m super invested into this game owning all expansion packs and add-ons specifically for building, as that’s what I primarily do. I have spent hundreds of dollars purchasing these for PS4 in the past few years so the fact I just deleted the game again because the update was so horrible not only disappoints me, but it makes me question what you guys were doing to make this better for console? I’ve tried restarting my PlayStation also redownloading the game thinking it was a bug, but no, it was the update that I didn’t even want in the first place and continued to push off. I can’t do anything in build mode, I can’t scroll through any of the items in the menu. Not to mention, I hate the fact you can’t exit out of the menu! I like to see what I’ve built and not have the menu in the way!! This update completely forgets about people who only play the game to build, especially console users.
I’m just disappointed and really wish this update never happened.
I hope you guys can fix this if there is a bug in the update.

I’m having this problem too but on Xbox one. It’s so frustrating I just downloaded 3 building packs and I cant even use them because build mode is broken.
