Escape Key - Hold support

I have a game which utilises holding the escape key, and it doesn't work with BTT's escape key.

So, Hold support for the escape key would be great. Maybe a new option for any trigger: While Button is Pressed, Hold Keyboard Shortcut

Yes, this is really important because:

  1. It's impossible to hold down a key.
  2. Listening to key-up events on touchbar buttons adds a 100-300ms delay since it takes time to lift the finger off.

This is the only thing holding me back from buying BetterTouchTools

I'm sure you guys have moved on at this point but here's a workaround for anybody trying to hold escape to exit a Stadia game like I was!

Add a new shortcut (I used keyboard shortcut ^Q — in my experience, don't use a shortcut that includes the escape key) to: press escape key down only (it's an option), delay next action by 3 seconds, "press" escape key up.

Still, it'd be great if the touch bar replacement escape supported holding down the escape key!
