Ok, so I was playing my game the other day when I kinda hoovered over my dining room and noticed that my chairs were missing; but it turned out they weren't missing but we're instead somehow inside of my table. Has this happened to anyone else? If it has happened to you, do you know of any way to fix it?
P.S I just got the new update..
I don't have Pets, or Generations..
I was unaware of this until about two minutes ago, but I also cannot not place anything on my tables either.
Very annoying. -.-
Does anyone know if EA intends on fixing the problem, or will I need to attempt to delete the patch?

I'm having the same issue(s). Any chair that snaps to tables, counters, desks, etc are snapping inside said surfaces. I have not tried chess sets, but I assume the issue will repeat there as well. In addition, decor objects cannot be placed on those surfaces (this excludes surfaces which cannot have a chair snap to it, like end tables, coffee tables, etc.)
This began after installing the patch just before Pets. I now have Pets installed, but the issue remains.
After patching to latest patch (without Pets), all custom surfaces seems to have problems. CC Items like counters and tables render all items put on them on the floor; ie: putting a bottle on a CC table, and the bottle appears on the floor. Same with counters where the sink now appears on the floor.
CC tables also have problems with chairs. Putting a chair next to a CC table, and the chair will now snap to the center of the table (intersecting it). Furthermore, the chairs will remain in the center position even when a Sim tries to sit on the chair; ie: the Sim will animate pulling out the chair, but the chair remains in the center and the sim ends up sitting on air.
I have Generations, but not Pets. I hadn't played in a while, and decided today I wanted to. I was fixing up a house for a new family, and lo and behold, all chairs snap beneath desks and tables! It does not seem to be happening with chess tables, though. But it only seems to be doing so with custom content tables.
My sims sit on air behind the chair and reach over it to eat their dinner.. holding one arm out in the air trying to hold onto the table.... However, this only happens on some furniture. Yes, I have the latest patch..... from last week?

This is an issue with CC Furniture. EA isn't going to fix custom content with a patch. It is up to the CC Creators to update their content. You are in luck tho, TSR has released a fix that you can use. I opted to just uninstall all my CC except clothing, hair and clutter items. I mostly use EA's furnishings anyway. You need to either go to TSR and get the fix for it, or uninstall any CC with place slots for objects or sims (including beds, chairs, tables, sofas, cars, dressers, counters, etc).
I am having the same issue but with items purchased from the Sims store. It happens with kitchen counters as well, when I place an item on top it goes inside and on the ground. Is there any fix for this problem???
