Disabling Visibility of Touch Bar Action leaves a gap between buttons

This is not so much a bug, but an unexpected behaviour.

When disabling an action in the Touch Bar section, that action, instead of hiding, it seems to shrink down. That means, whatever the spacing is for that item, will still be present. It would be nice if this didn’t happen.


  • First screenshot displays when nothing is disable in visibility.

  • Second screenshot is showcasing when the action between the Spotify now playing and volume down disabled.

  • Third screen is an over-exaggeration. I just duplicated the action between the Spotify now playing and volume down, and disabled the visibility of them all.

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
  • macOS version: macOS High Sierra Version 10.13.4 (17E202)
  • BetterTouchTool version: 2.500

Issue is fixed in BTT alpha version 2.506!

Could you try updating to the latest alpha via "Check for alpha version updates"? (I can't seem to be able to reproduce it on v2.506)
