Snap areas stopped work when dragging a window with a normal mouse

OS Sonoma 14.2.1
BTT 4.361

When dragging a window using trackpad or a normal mouse, snap windows appear on the screen and dragging to them changes the window per settings, and dragging to top of window would expand the dragged window to 100% screen. This is still working with my trackpad.
However it recently stopped working with my trackball, regardless of BTT version or computer reboot. I haven't changed anything on the trackball for years, no updates or changes in the configuration. The trackball is working fine on everything else, including trackball BTT configuration snapping a window to a location using the trackball -- but for some reason, now when dragging a window with the trackball, snap areas don't appear and snapping via drag to top of window doesn't work -- but only for the trackball.

Thanks,
Eric

is your trackball doing a standard left-mouse drag? or is it some special dragging?

Nothing special -- I use SteerMouse to assign "primary click" (left-mouse click) function to a button on an Elecom Huge trackball HUGE Wireless Trackball

It's been working fine for at least 5 years, but I think it stopped working in the last month, either with latest Sonoma update or a recent BTT update. The trackball and steer mouse setup, software and firmware haven't changed.

Any insights yet on change in behavior? I'm guessing something in Sonoma changed which caused the change in BTT behavior.

FYI - I looked into this and BTT version from 2022-12-30 does not have the bug. Sometime between that version and the existing version the snap windows stopped appearing when dragging with a mouse where left-click is reassigned to another button.

The mouse is accurately sending a left click - works fine - but BTT stopped recognizing that reassigned left click at some point.

It still works on the trackpad, but not the "normal mouse" functions of BTT - but it used to as evidenced by the 2022-12-30 version of the app.

I guess I'll stick with the BTT version from 2022-12-30 until this gets fixed. I use the top-screen, snap to full window size feature all the time on my second monitor, and I'm used to doing it with the mouse.

are you sure you mean 2022? Not 2023? So more than a year ago?

That would make it even weirder because
I don’t think there have been similar reports so far.

I’ll make a couple screen videos so you can see yourself. I tried the app from 2022-12-30 and the issue does not exist in that version. If you want, I can keep trying legacy versions until I find the one where the bug appears.

Again, this is happening when steermouse is used to map leftclick to another button on a “normal mouse”

I found when it broke using this page Index of /releases

The described function worked all the way to btt4.351-43510, uploaded at 2023-12-14 22:20

On the very next uploaded version btt4.352-43520 uploaded at 2023-12-15 09:36, the function broke

It was still broken at btt4.364-43640 uploaded at 2023-12-29 23:06

And it is still broken at the version I installed today: btt4.402-44020 uploaded at 2024-02-13 12:04

thanks, I’ll check what changed between these versions!
