Brightness widget always resets / is glitched? M1 Macbook Pro...

Note: Before bug reporting, please make sure you have tried the latest (alpha) 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 from the "User Diagnostic Reports" section.

Describe the bug
Is it normal that the brightness widget always resets itself back to 0 on the slider? I've attached a video to demonstrate the problem. I'm using a new M1 Macbook Pro.

Hi there, has this been fixed or is there any steps that we need to go through if we are on M1 to resolve this?


Still an issue :frowning: My brightness slider keeps resetting to its default/centered position.

mhh this has been resolved a while ago I think, are you on the latest version?

Hi Andreas,

I'm on 3.741 (1883) on Monterey 12.2. I have a "brightness slider widget" on my touchbar, and it adjusts the brightness just fine, but after about 2-3 seconds the slider resets back to the middle (the brightness doesn't change, just the slider). Hope this helps!

Thanks for the fantastic program, by the way - it's been a game changer for this otherwise useless touchbar, haha.

Edit: I'm on a Macbook Pro M1, if that helps.
