App specific keyboard shortcuts stop working

#1

Describe the bug
App specific keyboard shortcuts stop working after using "Move window one space" shortcuts on a window of that app.

Scenario:
I open an app. That app creates a new window. I use a keyboard shortcut defined under "Global" to move the window to another workspace. Now, app specific keyboard shortcuts defined for that app stop working. I must restart BTT in order to restore app specific keyboard shortcuts for that app.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
MacBook keyboard, external keyboard

Screenshots
NA

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: MacBook Pro 2016 15inch with touchbar
  • macOS version: 10.14.2
  • BetterTouchTool version: 2.717

Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):
The keyboard shortcuts I use for moving windows are defined as: Ctrl+Shift+Left and Ctrl+Shift+Right
I also have control and caps-lock swapped under the Keyboard->Modifier keys settings in System Preferences for my MacBook, so the real key combinations are CapsLock+Shift+Left/Right

Note: Before bug reporting, please make sure you have the latest version of BetterTouchTool and that you have already tried to restart your system :-). If you encounter a crash, please attach a crash log from the macOS Console.app from the "User Diagnostic Reports" section.

Thanks for reporting, I'll look into that.
However I think switching to another app and back (or clicking the desktop), should also activate them again.

Awesome, thanks. And yes you are right, switching apps does restore the shortcuts.

I have the same issue: app-specific keyboard shortcuts (in Outlook) stop working randomly until I restart BTT. I'll try switching to another app and back again, but surely this isn't the expected behaviour and there's a bug to be squashed somewhere?
