What's new in BetterTouchTool

Version 3.540:
  • Some improvements for M1 Macs (in case the update doesn't work automatically on these, please download a fresh copy from https://folivora.ai/)
  • You can now make Caps Lock act as a "Hyper Key" (a key that automatically presses all standard modifier keys for you). This allows you to define shortcuts like cmd+ctrl+opt+shift+A (which for sure won't interfere with anything) and still trigger them easily by only pressing Caps Lock + A.
  • To achieve this just record the Caps Lock key as a shortcut and assign the new "Act as Hyper Key" action to it.
  • Capturing the special & media keys on a keyboard and assigning actions to them is possible again (e.g. Play, Next, Previous, Eject).
  • The "Open URL / Open URL with Selection" action now allows to select which Browser to use
  • BTT can now be set as Default Browser. This allows you to run BTT actions based on the URL/App, and e.g. forward specific URLs to specific Browsers. (E.g. always open Microsoft Teams in Edge. It also allows to implement custom logic using scripts to determine how a URL shall be handled.
  • For more details see http://docs.folivora.ai/docs/1003_did_open_url.html.
  • Touch Bar buttons, script widgets and menubar items now support SF Symbol icons
  • Added a "Find Image on Screen & Move Mouse" action, which let's you search for some pixels on your screen and move the mouse cursor to the found position (if any). It's currently pretty basic but if you combine that with some click actions it can make it easier to automate things.
  • The "move mouse to position" action can now move relative to the corners of the main-screen or mouse-screen.
  • The || operator used in the "trigger menubar menu item" action will now also cycle between items if one of them is disabled.
  • Many little bugfixes.

I only use BetterTouchTool to resize my windows but I use it for that a gazillion times a day. Works great for me, been using it for years now. Works fine on Catalina. I'd be lost without it. Eventually I'll branch out and see what else little app can do.

There are only two things that are certain in life: 1) The sun will rise tomorrow. 2) There will be a new release of BTT tomorrow. ;) Seriously, this is an amazing program.

Does not work for me anymore, makes my Wacom super sluggish and has peaks of memory usage for no apparent reason (that are monitored by AppTamer). All I had set up were keyboard shortcuts. I won't rate it bad because it worked fine until he finally stopped updating daily... Oddly enough that is when it started acting up.

So perfect. Once set up it just runs in the background - silent and perfect

Spins Kernal process up to 1200%, crashes your machine, unstable, rendering not antialiased, drains battery. latest version of bettertouch & OSX as at 12/2019, it's not that they won't (eventually?) fix these problems but that with the next (non-alpha) update, they could come back again > Massive net productivity reduction Fantastic Idea, dismal implementation.

(from OSXDaily.com) The Green Button in OS X window bars used to “maximize” windows to fit the Mac screen, but since OS X Yosemite the Green Button now sends windows or apps into full screen mode by default. This can be modified one-off by Option+Clicking the green maximize button, but a better solution for some users is to permanently modify the behavior of this button to work like it used to instead. To change the green button maximize behavior you will need to use BetterTouchTool, a free application for OS X that performs many other functions and neat tricks with the Mac trackpad and mouse, but for the purposes here we’re just using it to adjust window maximizing universally throughout OS X. http://osxdaily.com/2015/03/11/change-the-green-button-maximize-behavior-in-os-x-yosemite-with-bettertouchtool/
