The quarantine has officially destroyed my sense of time. I felt like it was only mid-May, but tomorrow is June. Good lord. Let’s do this.
@crNh There is no way to add text suggestions to GC, although I wish it were possible. If it ever becomes possible I will definitely add such a feature.
@Zak_Bartlett I probably won’t be adding a minimal esc key style, but I am definitely making a tutorial to show people how to copy any widget they like into GC.
@Ceeel Do not edit dock badges using the BTT config window! Use the GC-BTT Preferences window. You can use the keyboard shortcut
cmd opt shift p to open the GC-BTT Preferences window. There you’ll be able to properly enable/disable dock badges.
@odrjosh The now playing widget uses macOS’s built-in now playing functionality. In the past GC had its own custom music widget, but this was a huge battery hog and not really worth it. Unfortunately, the macOS system now playing only shows the latest playing media if multiple are playing at once. There isn’t a way to reconfigure this that I know of, but I wonder if there’s some sort of helper app that can pause music when it detects a video being played? I’d use that, haha.
@Aresrodin Going through in order
- I am working on a setting for having the media controls always show
- That was implemented way back then! Simply long-press on the skip-forward or skip-backward buttons for skip forward 30s and skip backward 15s respectively.
- There is no progress bar for media unfortunately. I’ve been slowly looking into ways to achieve this, but it’ll probably be a while.
@Ayman I’m not sure what you mean by “original volume bar and brightness options”, could you elaborate? (The answer is probably to use the “Default Settings” button on the main tab of the GC settings window.) As for customizing the control menu, there aren’t user settings for that (yet) so I recommend checking/unchecking the things you want to appear there in the BTT configuration window. There is a group on the left sidebar for the control menu that houses all the control menu’s widgets!
@Future_Face Spotify’s AppleScript support is pretty limited. This is one of those controls I tried to write before, but there just isn’t support in Spotify’s app for it sadly.
@hariprasadsh What @Future_Face said might work! However, if it doesn’t, first remove and reinstall GC and see if that fixes things. If that does not fix things, open the GC Settings Window and click Default Settings and GC will reset itself to factory fresh. You know it’s successful when that Applying Settings message goes away on its own! It can take around 10-15 seconds for things to apply, so please be patient.
@drichard If you use safari you can do this with the native now playing controls chrome doesn’t support them, meaning it doesn’t support now playing in GC or even hardware keyboard media controls. Will also consider a center third window snap option!
As for the calendar issue, this sounds like a BTT issue. @Andreas_Hegenberg pinging you to check out this calendar widget issue!
