App-Specific trigger not prioritized + Different Triggers Conflicting

Describe the bug

I've set up the following Keyboard triggers for XCode:

Trigger 2 works fine, but trigger 1 does not activate.

The reason is that I have a trigger set up for "OPT+A" for "All Apps".

To clarify, the XCode triggers requires both right and left OPT keys to be pressed, while the All Apps only requires one OPT key to be pressed.

So as I see it there are two issues here:

App-Specific trigger not prioritized: XCode trigger is not being prioritized over All Apps
Different Triggers Conflicting: The All Apps trigger is in fact different from the XCode trigger and shouldn't be causing conflict at all.

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: MBP 2021 M1 MAX 16"
  • macOS version: 13.4.1 (22F82)
  • BetterTouchTool version: 4.214

I'm not 100% sure I understood your setup correctly, but one important thing to make sure:
The opt+a trigger in "all apps" (and other conflicting shortcuts) also need to have the "differentiate left/right modifiers" checkbox enabled for this to work.

This is a technical limitation for these shortcuts that differentiate between modifier keys. In theory it could be improved so BTT automatically recognizes this, however it's complicated to integrate into the existing logic.

Ah, got it! Yeah, that makes sense, thank you.
