Has anyone else had this problem? I want to use my cheats but every time I try to put in CTRL-SHIFT-C it just takes a screenshot/photo. Can someone please help me!

@TGoode09I believe you have to press COMMAND + SHIFT + C when playing on a mac.

Hi there!

 

In the Sims 3 64-bit and Metal, the new keyboard shortcut for cheats is cmd+shift+c

 

Hope this helps!

@TGoode09 I believe it's Command + Shift + C on Mac.

@jenndcook06  The command in Windows is crtl-shift-C.  If it's not working, you may have a program in the background that's using the same key combination.  The suggestions in this thread are for Sims 4, but the concept is the same.
