3 finger click + middle click not working as expected

BTT newbie here, I'm coming from MagicPrefs and I'm trying BTT on Catalina.
I'm trying to get the same behaviour that I had in MagicPrefs for the 3 fingers middle click.
I use it a lot especially on Safari for opening links in another tab (same as cmd-clicking a link).

So I set up the 3 finger click trigger in BTT, then I assigned "middle click".
It seems to work partially, because I can't feel the click in my magic trackpad.
it seems like a tap, not a click.
I also had a look at advanced options and tried assigning "additional haptic feedback" but no luck.

Can you guys recommend a simple and working setup to get a 3 fingers middleclick with normal click and not just "tap"?

I, too, am having issues with Middle Click assignments on Catalina. I use Chrome, but much like you, I need to open links in new tabs WITHOUT using my other hand on the keyboard (Cmd+click).

I just wanted to concur with your post that BTT has not mastered the Middle Click behavior as MagicPrefs once had mastered. It appears to be this new Catalina OS. :wink:

Try disabling "Use trackpad gesture to zoom" in Accessibility Settings > Zoom > Advanced > Controls.

Worked for me on M1 Macbook Air on Big Sur.

Edit: looks like this doesn't work for everyone.

Nope already off not working for me.

Would sure be nice to be able to middle click.
