Stickers do not work: the sticker window does not appear and nothing is pressed, the program does not hang. If you press Alt + F4, you can press the buttons and continue to play, but the sticker never appears.

Do you mean sticky notes?
Can you explain exactly what you are doing to try and make them work?

All you should need to do is right-click anywhere on the screen other than on a controlled element (e.g. signal) and the menu should pop up.

Clarification - click anywhere above the lowest visible element as some of the black space is not necessarily active.

One of the great problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas.

I click with the right mouse button anywhere, but nothing happens, only you cannot click on anything and it is accompanied by a beep sound, but the game continues to work. How basically it works, I know, I've been playing for several years. Reinstalled, but does not help. If there is any file, I will send it.
Before trying to put a sticker, the cursor is in the form of a cross, then in the form of an arrow (if it matters).

For how long has it not been working, did any particular update or change to your computer trigger this failing behaviour?

In the morning the program worked, then suddenly ceased. When you install a new sticker or try to change the old sticker, the frame of the Wyeway area becomes slightly lighter.

It sounds like the sticky windows has got stuck in an off screen position. Make sure simsig is closed. The file I have attached contains a reg file that should fix the issue, just extract the file from the zip and (as with any operation like this please back up you registry first) just right click it and select merge.
