Describe the bug
The Magic Trackpad isn't disabled when typing and causes the cursor to jump when accidentally touching the trackpad surface. I've set "Disable trackpad gestures after hitting…" time to 1s and enabled "Reeenble gestures only after touching…".
Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
- Type of Mac: MacBook Prop 15" 2017
- macOS version: 11.2.1
- BetterTouchTool version: 3.588
Tap to click is active and the preferred mode of interaction.
I have also been having problems with this. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I am not sure what the "Time based" setting actutally does (it it the amount of time that needs to pass after a key is pressed before the trackpad will reactivate?), but with
Reenable gestures only after touching the center area if the trackpad"
that shouldn't even play a roll. In order to figure out whether this is a bug or not, we'd need to know how "center area" is defined. Maybe I sometimes accidentally touch that center area and that way reenable gestures?
It would also be good to know what "reenable gestures" means. Does it mean the first center area touch reenables gestures and the next touch will be registered as a gesture or is already the first center-area-touch registered as a gesture?
I think it would be better if the first touch only served to reenable gestures. It would also be good to allow users to set a higher limit before gestures are reenabled, e.g. double tap or even force tap. I have my trackpad placed below the space bar and accidental touches that activate a different window or a different wart of the text has been a major nuisance for me and I'm hoping that BTT will help me solve that.
Same issue here on my MBP M1 2021 16", tried all sort of options but still have this jumping cursor issue which is SO annoying...
