A left tap on my Magic Mouse sometimes triggers right click.

I prefer to tap on my Magic Mouse over actually doing physical clicks. To achieve that I have to rules set up.

One is 1 finger tap left, which triggers a Left click action, and the other is 1 finger tap right, which triggers a Right click action.

Occasionally, my left taps starts to trigger right clicks. As in, regardless of where I tap on the Magic Mouse, a right click is triggered. The bug occurs for me maybe a few times a week, and I have discovered no known triggers for the bug.

On rare occasions the problem goes away after mashing left and right clicks and taps on the mouse, but the easiest fix is to restart BTT.

  • Type of Mac: MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports)
  • macOS version: 10.14.6
  • BetterTouchTool version: 3.206

I have had the issue since I bought my Magic Mouse maybe a year ago, so all versions of BTT in that timespan have had the bug.

Just found this old bug report involving different hardware and triggers, but still involves left clicks interpreted as right clicks: left-click action triggered after a mouse move will sometimes trigger a right-click action.
