My sim won’t write books since new update

★★★★ Novice

My sim won’t write books on any of the computers in the home since I’ve updated my game. He can use the computer for everything but writing a genre book for work. He has been maxed out on writing levels and has been an author for over a year with no issues. I have tried quitting and restarting the game. I’ve tried traveling. Other sims in the house can write books but he will not and I have no idea what to do.

@honeypotbee  I've merged your post with the master thread on this issue.  It's interesting that only one sim is affected.  At any rate, feel free to click Me Too and add any other info you find relevant.

@ozjedah It's unfortunate to have to do this after every writing action though.

Can't write books on computer

★★★★ Newbie

I know this has been an issue in the past with a lot of other people, and CC seemed to be the issue, but I turned off CC and removed Mods folder for good measure, and still cannot write a book on the computer in any lot. The issue is I will click on write book, genre, but the action doesn't even pop up in the to do bar for the sim! Thank you in advanced!
