BTT Setapp keeps restarting

After setting up a configuration BTT suddenly started to restart in loop, crashing each time and consuming a crazy amount of RAM. While restarting, some app icons appear on the Touch Bar, but not the ones I set up. I wish I could copy the log from Mac's console, but I cannot paste a .txt file here.

Could you check whether there are any crashlogs in the macOS console app under user reports? (you can also send them to

You can kill BTT completely using this terminal command:
killall BetterTouchTool && killall BTTRelaunch

Killing it doesn't really work during this restart loop. The only way to go that I found is to uninstall.

Here are three of seven crash logs from the most recent attempt to launch BTT:

BetterTouchTool Setapp_2019-10-24-131534_MacBook-von-Jakub-2016.crash (95.1 KB)
BetterTouchTool Setapp_2019-10-24-131524-1_MacBook-von-Jakub-2016.crash (99.0 KB)
BetterTouchTool Setapp_2019-10-24-131454-1_MacBook-von-Jakub-2016.crash (99.0 KB)

Ah it seems to be caused by one of the calender widgets.

Do you remember whether you added a custom display format here?

I wonder whether that contained '{icon}', because that seems to be the only way how it would run into that problematic code path

Could you maybe send me the contents of this folder to
~/Library/Application Support/BetterTouchTool (the files that have 3.206 in them would be enough)

To open that folder use Finder => Go => Go To Folder
