Menu Bar Icons Incorrect Colours

Describe the bug

When black and white icons are used as menu bar button icons, they have a tendency to be displayed as entirely white. Issue has been present since I began using around 6 months ago. I use icns file types, not sure if it has this issue with others.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):

Menu bar

icon in but prefs

icon as displayed on menubar

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: M1 Ultra Studio
  • macOS version: Ventura
  • BetterTouchTool version: 4.047

if completely black and white icons are used, the white part must be transparent, otherwise BTT can not automatically adapt to light / dark mode


I have sort of similar issue with colors of menubar items with text. Font color doesn't change depending on the background color (like all other icons do)
