Describe the bug
The menu bar is frequently displaying menu items as black on black. I changes depending on what space I'm in (I think).
I'm not 100% sure this is a bug but nothing I do can get the menu items to invert back.Quitting bartender has no effect. Neither does toggling on and off "make whole notch bar black"
this happens if you use a light desktop wallpaper, unfortunately BTT currently can only „forward“ the menubar icons the same way as they are displayed on the standard macOS menubar. (and macOS makes them black if a light background is used)
I’ll soon add sole detection logic to automatically invert black on black icons.
It seems I have a similar problem, but it is connected solely to my recent update of BTT. Everything worked great. But after attempted update, I got an error, then it seems I installed the update, but the top menu bar is all black and I do not see anything there. Only right clicking helps find the app icon I need. Now I have to refrain from using BTT.
I have M1 Macbook Pro, latest OS 12.6. Not using dark theme. I didn't change any system settings. It's the update that broke the top bar.
Thank you @Andreas_Hegenberg ! I noticed that there is a green dot now on the BTT icon in the menu bar. Why is it? Usually those dots mean that the app is watching or listening. But I didn't give permissions to screen record (only accessibility permissions) and BTT has no access either to a camera or mic...
Right, thank you , Andreas! For the answers and amazing tool. I can see that it's customisable, but I'll wait when it will be easier to customise and easier learning curve So turned off for the time being.
Yeah the updates are fast and furious and I love it.
This isn't your problem at all but FYI I can't really get into the preferences of Bartender when I'm using better touch tool.
A right click normally does it but I only get the bartender prefs.
I spent the last month trying to chase down this issue! It never occurred to me that BTT might be the "culprit". I have two monitors—neither one sports a notcch—and the menubars were wonky. Finally did identify BTT as the cause, came here to report it and noticed this comment about the notch bar settings.
Which were enabled by default.
Andreas, you might want to consider changing that default. Thanks!
(I'm 99% sure that with previous versions I did not see the duplicated section names here - I mean the "Default Items:" and "User Defined Items")
I also have the following automations - I use them as a workaround for notch bar not disappearing for full-screen apps I use (firefox and moonlight) and I also configured the context menu that pops up when I move the mouse into the notch itself:
