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? 1.05
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? City Living, Vampires, Vintage Glamour Stuff
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In Live Mode, open a Sim's inventory and try to sell a stack of items by pressing triangle and square at the same time.
What happens when the bug occurs? Instead of giving you the option to sell the whole stack, it usually acts as if you had only pressed square which picks up the item, allowing you to place it in the world. Or it will act as if you only pressed triangle, asking if you want to sell that one item.
What do you expect to see? A window appears that asks if you want to sell the whole stack of items.
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? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. The patch was Version 1.05. I don't see anything in the patch notes that would indicate this has been changed but clearly something is affecting this ability.
I've played Sims 4 on PS4 for months now and never had an issue pressing triangle+square to sell all items in a stack, besides the occasional flub where I don't press the square good enough and it only asks to sell one. But today I downloaded the patch and as I went to sell my hundreds of fruits and vegetables I have from gardening, I noticed it would only recognize I was hitting the square button and try to place my item. I've tried over and over, varying the way I press the buttons, delaying slightly before I press the other button, etc. Nothing works. I can still sell items one at a time but with literally hundreds of fruits and vegetables, it will take far too long to delete them one by one. I don't know what changed but I'm hoping this will be corrected and possibly assigned to different buttons because it is kind of a pain pushing down both square and triangle. Much more of a pain to sell one at a time though so I'll just be happy if it's back to normal.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I just started up my game after this update and I too am having this issue, I was really hoping that they just reassigned the buttons but nothing seems to work. I am about to wipe out my garden because of it, I have way to many harvestable I was using to make extra money to be selling them one at a time, it is time consuming and no fun to do it this way. I am hoping they have a fix to this issue soon.
I'm on Xbox one and the solution of pressing X & Y has worked brilliantly until the latest patch. Now I can't sell stacks of harvestables. Every single household I have grows lots of stuff because it's a quick money maker. I've never posted before but this is a game breaker for me. I've spent so much money on this game and all the updates but I'm done until you bring back a way to sell my hundreds of harvestables at once. I can't believe this isn't possible! Please fix this, EA!

Thanks for letting us know about this issue, we are aware of it and Maxis is working on a fix.
To sell Stacks right now while we investigate, the following steps might help, please, give them a try:
