Swipe From Left Edge (start outside of the trackpad on the aluminum)

Describe the bug
The (two finger) Swipe From Left Edge (start outside of the trackpad on the aluminium) is very flakey. Works <50% of the time only no matter what actions I assign to it. This is particularly noticeable as the default MacOS two finger swipe from right edge works flawlessly everytime.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
MacBook Pro TrackPad

Screenshots
N/A

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2020, Four Thunderbolt 3 ports) - also happened on 2018 MPB previously.
  • macOS version: 10.15.5
  • BetterTouchTool version: 3.389

Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):
None.

I might add it's the other way around for me. I've been accidentally triggering an action which starts playing full screen news and I had to inspect a lot to figure out I had use this exact gesture for that but forgotten about it. So it triggers many times when I'm not even swiping from the left side. I wish there was a sensitivity setting for this.
