Steermouse and BTT Conflict

Note: Before bug reporting, please make sure you have tried the latest (alpha) version of BetterTouchTool and that you have already tried to restart your system :-). If you encounter a crash, please attach a crash log from the macOS Console.app from the "User Diagnostic Reports" section.

Describe the bug
Cursor hover does not work in multiple apps.
Unable to drag windows when activating Mission control (hover does not work either). It seems after the first Mission Control activation hover stops functioning. Hover continues to work for the Magicmouse but still unable to drag the window.
Exiting BTT solves the issue.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
Microsoft Trackball Explorer (Steermouse)

Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):

I'm having a similar mouse issue when using SteerMouse + BTT. I actually don't need any of BTT's mouse functions, so would be great if I could just disable them entirely somehow.

unfortunately the conflict is not with BTT's mouse functionality (which is disabled if you don't use it).

It's probably with macOS event taps which can be problematic if multiple apps are using them. Unfortunately there is probably no way to resolve this ;-(

@Andreas_Hegenberg is there no hope of these two apps working together?

Unfortunately BetterTouchTool will not allow me to hold shift and scroll down to trigger the keyboard shortcut "shift+alt+left arrow" or simple things like this, so I've stayed on SteerMouse. Or if it's possible to someone resolve the conflict between the two apps
