Additionally - to build on @ossinova's question, certain apps i.e. PDF Expert and Evernote have their own TouchBar functionalities. Is it possible to build their specific touchbar settings into GC / BTT TouchBar settings? I know I can disable BTT touchbar within these apps but I'd then lose some functionality such as two/three finger swipes etc. Just wondering if I can somehow merge BTT+GC and App-specific touchmar benus together?

Cheers!

I’m going to parrot @Andreas_Hegenberg and say it sounds like you’re on the wrong BTT version. Make sure you’re on the latest alpha - 3.195 as of this post. These newer versions already fixed issues related to running these scripts so hopefully you are simply on an older BTT :slight_smile:

As for your other question - it is totally possible! This is another thing I will write a tutorial for one day, but you can set which apps disable the BTT Touch Bar in the BTT config window in the left sidebar. At the very bottom left corner there’s an add button, and there you’ll see the app-specific options you’re looking for.

If I understood correctly this:

Is not possible with BTT (because macOS doesn't allow to modify native / existing app Touch Bars.)

Hm interesting. I've been making 100% sure to update to the latest alpha before updating GC to any of the latest versions. I am now on 3.195 and the CTRL is still not working.

I'll completely re-install GC BTT when I get some time this afternoon and see if that makes any difference. Perhaps something got bugged somewhere along the update pathway

Edit: very strange. Deleted the preset, re-installed, reset the settings to "default" - and with all combinations my CTRL modifier strip still does not show. When clicking CTRL, only the weather and date/time widgets show up (this is a personal setting - turned off all the other widgets), but none of the other original control widgets (brightness, volume, lock/sleep, etc show up).

Another question: would it be possible to have a setting that will automatically toggle short step vs normal volume/brightness adjustments when 2/3-finger swiping? I find the small step option a little bit too slow for my liking and always manually change it to the normal setting.

Thanks! :slight_smile:

This is exactly what I had in mind. Looking forward to @GoldenChaos write up tutorial on it. Can't wait.

GoldenChaos-BTT SDK? Maybe one day, haha... :smile:

@wiffle This is super crazy strange and I am stumped, but want to get to the bottom of it. Is the control strip even there for you? Can you enable the widgets manually? Can you show me a screenshot of one of the control strip widgets and its modifier menu config, dark mode toggle for example? This is truly a mystery :open_mouth:

Agreed :frowning: I really have no idea what's going on.

For what it's worth, when I tried the "fresh" re-install, even having deleted the previous preset GC tried to apply the previous settings and to some degree, it worked. Is there a way to fully erase all memory of GC and re-install? Maybe this will fix whatever is going on with my machine.

In any case, can you elaborate a bit on which screenshots you're looking for? Happy to provide whatever you need.

EDIT - downgraded back to 3.186 and now the CTRL modifier menu is working just fine again.... V strange.

@GoldenChaos for me, pinyin-simplified is not working properly, as the globe doesn't show up. Also, it seems that the dark mode icon is working perfectly now. Thanks for responding!

I've noticed that my machine slows to a crawl when I'm copying cell data in Excel 2016, particularly when I'm in spreadsheets with large numbers of cells. It doesn't matter how many cells I select (it can just be a single cell), only that there are many in the whole spreadsheet. The memory usage of BTT seems to jumps up when I begin to copy data and the Touch Bar seems to freeze, typically showing the GC options when the command key is pressed. If I quit BTT or shut off GC, I do not seem to have any problems at all. This also doesn't seem to be a problem in Excel 2011 from what I can tell. I'm running BTT 3.195 and GC 3.194. I believe it was still a problem when I was on the previous BTT/GC versions I was on, I think 3.187.

Excel and other Microsoft apps unfortunately use very weird clipboard management (different from any other app on the Mac), which is why BTT's clipboard manager might not work well with it.

In general the Touch Bar widget uses the same settings as BTT's main clipboard manager - which means that it should have the microsoft office optimizations enabled. However I have never tested them with the old Office 2016

You can however disable the clipboard manager for Office apps if you want to:

This is a screenshot of the main clipboard manager settings (predefined action show clipboard/pasteboard history)

BetterTouchTool 3.200 is out! GC-BTT 3.200 Stable is on the way and will be out shortly. I'm preparing the release now :slight_smile: once it's out I'll update all the screenshots and documentation. It includes some minor bug fixes for RC2, plus an extra menu bar widget I snuck in, but otherwise RC2 totally passed muster and now I just need to write the giant release notes.

Hello I've having a small issue. I have both Clipboard History and Emoji Picker enabled in my menu bar. When I tap the clipboard history button, it switches places with the emoji picker button. When I push Clipboard history again and it goes away, and the order reverts.

Whoops, looks like they're set to the same display order number - I'll push out a bug fix update to the stable version tomorrow that fixes this :slight_smile:

Golden Chaos randomly stopped working for me today. I was thinking that i may have to reinstall it so i did the latest version and still nothing. It's like it doesn't recognize the application.

Could you share some more info? GC version, BTT version, macOS version, screenshots of your Touch Bar and BTT config window, etc?

it seemed to have fixed itself, thanks.

Would it be possible to support brave browser?
Thanks so much for this awesome preset!

I can definitely look into it! As long as it supports scripting, it should be possible :slight_smile:

could you also make the tabs feature of GC-BTT preset to support Opera and Vivaldi? That would be great thanks!
