Split/Tile Window Doesn't Execute

Hello,

I'm trying to switch to BetterTouchTool for trackpad and keyboard control primarily for windows management. I've been trying to get the "Open Native OS X Split View for Windows" to work. The gesture triggers, but nothing is executed. I've tried searching everywhere; apparently there is no systemwide hotkey to split view either.

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: Macbook Pro 2019 16
  • macOS version: Catalina 10.15.3
  • BetterTouchTool version: 3.346 (1554)

I'm sorry unfortunatley this only works for older macOS versions, I should remove it from the UI.

However you can get the same on 10.15. by triggering the actions using the predefined action "Trigger Menubar Menu Item" and entering "Window;Tile Window to Left of Screen" (or right). This will trigger the macOS menubar Window => Tile Window...

Thank you for the prompt response! Much appreciated!

I'm having the issue where not every program or app has the "Window" menu item to trigger "Tile window to left/right of screen"

is there another way to trigger this function?

I used the "Trigger Menubar menu item" action and it works, thanks.
The problem is that the animation is very slow (takes more than 5 seconds). This doesn't happen when clicking on the menu entry normally. Any ideas?

you are probably using a shift based shortcut, while shift is pressed animations on macOS execute at low speed
