Describe the bug
In many applications it's possible to horizontally scroll by pressing Shift and using the mouse's scroll wheel. Having BTT running prevents this behaviour.
Affected input device:
MacBook keyboard or external USB keyboard + Logitech g400s mouse
- Type of Mac: MacBook pro early 2015
- macOS version: Mojave 10.14.3 (18D42)
- BetterTouchTool version: 2.428 (788)
This issue occurs even when using a totally blank preset
I have just discovered this issue. Can't scroll at all (vert or horiz) with my Logitech G402 if shift is held down. Did you ever find a fix for this, harryd?
Nope, cloudn't find a fix for this
I looked into this again and found a solution!
In the Advacned settings, on the General tab there's a tickbox for "Disable BetterTouchTool while holding" and tick Shift. Give BTT a restart for good measure.
Yes! Thank you! Works great now.
Where'd you find the solution? I was looking all over, just curious
Just found it from tinkering again, missed it before. A year without horizonal scrolling!
I just foudn this bug, so it's still there after over a year. Glad to have your fix, but it's not ideal as it means you can't use shift in any of your BTT triggers.
Fingers crossed for a fix
Turned out it's not even a bug: Disable horizontal scrolling while touching magic mouse 2 - #3 by Andreas_Hegenberg
(I've had the same "bug" and this was the first topic I've found by google, so it seems important to put that link here…)
this is only a partial solution as holding shift + any other modifier re-enables BTT breaking horizontal scrolling with the scroll wheel. I don't even use BTT for anything mouse related, so why in the world does it insist on (INCORRECTLY) mapping scroll wheel + shift to wheel tilt (regardless of other modifiers)??
Please give an option for this as it completely changes (ruins) the scrollwheel experience in macOS!
