"Display Notification" Apple Script not working

For example doing the following on a Touch Bar button with either "Run Apple Script" action selected:

display notification "My Notification" with title "Title" subtitle "Subtitle"

The notification does not show, but the rest of my Apple Script script works as expected.

Documentation for display notification command:


  • macOS Big Sur 11.5.2 (20G95) (latest as of this post)
  • BetterTouchTool 3.581 (1724) (latest as of this post)

I'm leaving this thread up because someone else might have this issue too.

Make sure "Run in background (limited support)" is unchecked when the "Run Apple Script" action is highlighted/selected.
