Move All App Windows to Current Desktop

Describe the bug
I am on the latest alpha version of BTT and have restarted my system.

I have a hotkey (Cmd+Ctrl+T) that is set to show/hide iterm2. I have configured BTT to "move all app windows to current desktop" when I hit this hotkey. This used to work beautifully, but I noticed with the latest MacOS update (Sonoma 14.5) that this feature no longer works. Hitting the hotkey instead brings me to the desktop that iterm2 is currently on.

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

If applicable, add screenshots to help explain your problem. (You can just paste or drag them here)

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: Silicon M3
  • macOS version: Sonoma 14.5
  • BetterTouchTool version: 4.573 (alpha)

Additional information (e.g. crash logs, related issues, etc.):

You are right, Apple seems to have removed the possibility to move windows between spaces (it was an undocumented API).

I'll check whether I can find a replacement, but it might not be possible anymore at all ;-(

OK, I did some investigation. The situation is quite bad. Apple made the function to move windows between spaces protected, it now would require system integrity protection to be disabled.

However there is one remaining function that can move windows between spaces and is not protected yet. I expect Apple will protect this one too in one of the next macOS versions but for now it should work again with 4.574 alpha!

Confirming resolved. I will be devastated when this feature is stripped away but obviously there's not much you can do if Apple hates me. I appreciate you.

Yep, I don't really understand why they are protecting these. Moving windows between spaces doesn't seem like a security problem...
