"Move right a space" action moves left instead

Tested against latest stable version and alpha version - 3.9984 (2174).

OS: Ventura 13.0.1, 2019 Intel MBP

Describe the bug
Any action that should trigger "Move Right a Space" instead moves left a space. If the current active desktop is the leftmost one, no action occurs. The trackpad gesture for swipe between full-screen applications is working as expected (this is set up externally to BTT), when multiple desktop spaces are available or apps are running in full-screen.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
Any - reproduced on both normal mouse and with a keyboard shortcut. The triggered action is the problem, not the input (which is recognised correctly).


Device information:

  • Type of Mac: 2019 Intel MBP
  • macOS version: Ventura 13.0.1
  • BetterTouchTool version: 3.9984 (2174) but it's been happening for the last few versions, and possibly since the Ventura upgrade.

Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):
No workaround available to me. I switch desktops using the app expose functionality, and then the "move left a space" action will still work to take me through the desktops going left. If I trigger the "move right" it will also go left in this case, until the leftmost one is reached.

Possibly something is wrong with the shortcuts defined in System Settings => Keyboard => Keyboard Shortcuts => Mission Control => Mission Control

(BTT uses these to switch the spaces)

Thanks for the quick reply. You are quite right that they both had the same keyboard shortcut bound in there (perhaps there could be a pointer to this spot somewhere in the documentation for the action within BTT?).

I reset the keyboard shortcuts to default, but this did not fix the problem immediately. However, running killall Dock from the terminal then solved the problem - so if anyone else is experiencing the same issue, a restart of the OS (or at least the Dock) might be required.

Thanks very much!

I just had the same thing happen. For no reason at all, BTT stopped allowing me to move right a space. Never would have thought to check the OS keyboard shortcuts, so thank you for posting this here. No idea what changed the shortcuts, or why, so that's a curious problem...
