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 Console.app from the "User Diagnostic Reports" section.
Describe the bug
BTT uses full CPU at random moments.
Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
If applicable, add screenshots to help explain your problem. (You can just paste or drag them here)
- Type of Mac: MacBook Pro 13 inch - 2019 - Four TB3 ports
- macOS version: now Big Sur 11.1, happened on Catalina already
- BetterTouchTool version: 3.505 (please post the exact version - not just "the latest one")
Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):
BTT will work for hours without issues when suddenly I notice my fans spinning up.
I have not been able to relate this to any other action or software.
To "solve" the issue I need to quit BTT, wait 10 seconds and restart it. Usually at the first or second try this resolves the issue, for a couple more hours.
I have tried several things already as suggested in this forum:
- Disabled preference sync
- Removed preferences not needed
- Turned off the touchbar functions
My iMac 27 inch Late 2015 does not show these issues, even though it has the same config (since I used to have preference sync enabled). I use the same software on both.
