Emulate Selected App as Active - BUTTON 👁

Im often editing Touch Bar groups and do like the View Option - Emulate Selected App as Active. But as you know, that feature/option doesn't work very well. I find myself having to de-select and re-select that option to re-gain the view. Would be nice to have a button (like preview EYE) on the main UI to toggle this feature on/off.

As a temporary solution, there is a touchbar preset that offers this button (that also shows you wether it's active or not)

Cant see how a Touch Bar button would work for this.

Here the button itself for the TouchBar, without the rest of the group:

Thanks for this. I have this in the BTT application menu/Touch Bar now.

My issue is more related to the bug where BTT doesn't respect that I have this option activated and stops showing the menu bar I am editing unless I uncheck and recheck it. This will help with that process.

Still having issues with this feature. Its inconsistent, doesn't work with groups, but often fails with specific application "folders" as well. Not a big issue, but would be nice if it worked with group folders and didn't require disable/enable so often.
