Describe the bug

I've reported on this issue before, but it still has not been resolved.

I have assigned 2x2 shortcuts.

Scroll left and Scroll right (hovering on dock)
This resizes a window 50% left or 50% right respectively

Scroll left and Scroll right (hovering on menu bar)
This simulates browser back shortcut and browser forward shorcut respectively.

Now, I'd like to use Scroll up and Scroll down in the same way. It works fine on the menu bar.

I use Scroll up to pull up the App Expose, and Scroll down to simulate Command + M

But when I try to apply Scroll up and Scroll down to Dock hover, it works fine. But if my cursor is on a webpage for example, and not on the dock, it puts the little "BTT Select Comand" tool tip or menu, and it's empty. Screenshot attached.

Just for reference, this also happens with Scroll left and Scroll right. But I've disabled Scroll left and Scroll right if the mouse is NOT touching Dock or Menubar. The side effect is I can't scroll left or right if there is scrollable content. But this is something I seldom ever use, but it would be nice to have it because sometimes it comes in handy.

The only place it doesn't do this, is with the Scroll up and Scroll down functions attached to the Menubar. It doesn't pull up the weird BTT empty select menu.

Please please fix this already thanks :slight_smile:

Could you attach an export of your preset here?

Hi Andreas,

thanks. Sure here you go! Just a quick update. It seems only when scroll up/down/left/right is used on the dock - it causes the dodgy object. It does not causes this when either of the directions are attached to the menubar.

In this preset of mine, go to Mouse functions, and scroll right to bottom, I've grouped the entire lot there.

Hi Andreas,

were you able to replicate the issue with my preset?

Yes! It will be fixed with the next update, alpha later today.

Hi Andreas,

SO SO GLAD you found a fix! I'll be able to add more functions to my scroller now because I've been running out of mouse functions haha! Thanks man!

Would be great if you'd try whether the latest alpha 2.462 already solves this for you!
