BTT closes/crashes? in the background when not actively used for a while

BTT closes in the background when not actively used for a while. When restarted works fine but it's annoying to have to reopen it whenever I use a gesture, keyboard shortcut, etc. after I haven't used any BTT function for a bit. I have a super old school license I bought in 2016 that doesn't cover any more recent versions. This glitch has been happening for a while and started when I updated to a new MacOS several MacOS versions ago but I've been putting off looking for a solution

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: Macbook Air 2015
  • macOS version: MacOS Monterey 12.1
  • BetterTouchTool version: 2.428

you seem to be on a very old BTT version, which might not fully be compatible with macos 12.1.
I’d recommend upgrading to a current version which is optimized for the new operating system.
