Just so I don’t make a new post.

 

Since the last patch there’s the issue with rotating roofs (it works sometimes and sometimes it’s completely unresponsive), we also can’t switch between single window and room windows placement using L1 and R1 on PS4. 

And a weird glitch I found - if you go to create an outfit for restaurant workers (waiters or chef or host) or retail workers, once you come out of CAS all rotation is dead. Also can’t go through phone menu using L1 and R1. The only way to fix it is to restart the game.

 

*I am playing on PS4 with plenty of free space, have all the packs installed and newest patch.

 

Have a good day, stay safe 🙂

Has there been any resolution? I was looking at a post that was posted in Technical Issues that suggested this is due to the July 2020 update. I have tried exiting and restarting the game with no luck. This is beyond frustrating and makes the game unplayable. It effects the use of R1 and L1 in all aspects of the game.
