I've tried both with laptop mode enabled and disabled. I've tried every solution suggested on the original post. I never had this problem on my Dell laptop, but as I understand it is Mac specific. I got the Mac on Monday. I downloaded the Sims 4 and all of my packs on Wednesday. I launched the game the first time on Thursday and experienced the glitch immediately. It is Friday now.
I've just noticed that if you press the mouse wheel you can rotate the sim from any point of the screen. You still have the random part of the sim selection going on, but at least you can work just with the mouse.
Hi, I'm also a Mac user and I just came across this glitch when I downloaded the Cats and Dogs pack. I don't think it has anything to do with mods or custom content because I've taken them completely out multiple times and the glitch still persists. I've done all the steps, restarted my computer, wiped my computer of the game and origin and re-downloaded everything multiple times just in case, did the super clean thing or whatever, taken out my saves and such, etc, etc. I've literally done everything and I have no idea why it's happening. Something must be wrong with the game, my computer, origin, my mouse, or something I have no idea about.
Just wanted to mention my view on it just in case it meant anything. It probably doesn't help much. :/
