[WORKAROUND] UI background extends in CAS

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? 1.58.63.1010
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? In CAS (either cas.fulleditmode or non cheaty) click on any category of sims clothing, hair etc.
What happens when the bug occurs? Some sims (so far Olivia Kim-Lewis and Lillith Pleasent - townie version from DU) have an extended and off center background UI. (image attached) this only happens when you click on the categories and the categories within. For example Tops > T-shirts.
What do you expect to see? The background of the categories in the right spot as before.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. I have noticed it with the DU patch however someone else I know had the issue come with the IL patch.

Images attached to show what I am describing.

@amosplays Interesting fact.
Resetting options.ini did fix this issue.
I have however not managed to find which setting actually triggers it, but I suspect it has to do with the UI scaling.

According to patch notes today, this should be fixed.

I'm not done reading those yet though, but I can check once I'm done.

@itsug That would be great. I find the notes on this a bit inconclusive if it's this or another issue.

Dangit, I was kind of hoping that would be the issue they fixed, but it is still there.

This was not what they fixed apparently. (all mods still deactivated when I checked so no mods or cc installed)
