Illustrator CC Window Snap not an option



Not sure if it's a bug but if it is, Illustrator does not have the ability to window snap.

**Affected input device

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: iMac
  • macOS version: 10.13.4
  • BetterTouchTool version: 2.427


It's currently disabled in BTT because Illustrator has some serious bugs when "talking" to it through the necessary API.


Is this something we should bring to Adobe's attention?


I think they are already well aware (it doesn't only affect BTT) :slight_smile:
I haven't checked for a while if anything has changed in recent updates, I'll check that soon.


Any new on the Illustrator front? Works quite well with "Magnet" :wink:


It works in recent versions of Illustrator but still causes various very weird bugs and slowdowns on many systems as far as I know, that's why it's still disabled in BTT.

However I can now add an option to enable it, maybe it will work correctly on some systems.


Thanks for the update! Sorry for my late reply – it'd be more than awesome if you could add an option to enable it, I'd be excited to try it!


You can try this command (while BTT is quit):

defaults write com.hegenberg.BetterTouchTool BTTDontDisableWindowSnappingForProblematicApps YES


Excellent, thank you so much! Works well for me!
