Better touch tool using 99% CPU Power

Better Touch Tool is using 99% of my CPU

Macbook Pro 13inch 2018, latest MacOsCatalina 10.15.3

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

Probably disable experimental Dropbox sync, that's currently buggy in some systems.

where do I disable that?
I never activated such feature on better touch tool nor I want it

Are you sure? Then it's probably some other issue.

I'd still check the settings:

which issue?

Ok, sync seems to be disabled, so that's not it. Could you try to run this terminal command?

sample BetterTouchTool -file ~/Desktop/sample.txt

Then attach the sample.txt from your Desktop here?

sample.txt.zip (31.5 KB)

Weird, that sample looks ok. Does the 99% CPU usage happen right after starting BTT?

from time to time when I am connected to an external monitor

but it's an heavy app

Would be great if you could run the sample command again when it hits 99%.

In general cpu usage depends a lot on the features and presets you are using. E.g. Touch Bar presets with many Apple Scripts can cause relatively high CPU usage.

I recommend the latest alpha (3.311), which should significantly reduce CPU usage in some areas.

I have read somewere that connecting a external monitor gives issues with macbook pro. (16 inch).
I hope this is helpful.
