Okay, it has something to do with the resolution of the game. For some reason, now things have to be clicked on to the left side of the item, for example clicking on the banner that tells you to place a stockpile requires clicking on the far left side of the banner, clicking a tree and then clicking the axe to chop it requires clicking on the far left side of the axe icon etc.
So it’s not totally broken, you just have to adjust where you click for some reason. Perhaps it does not affect anybody else and it’s only my game that it’s happening to, I don’t know.
Edited: I wrote we have to click on the right side of items but it’s actually we have to click on the left side of items.
