Touch Bar swipe gestures with app's built-in Touch Bar?

not-possible

#1

Hi there! I have set up BTT so that I can use two-finger and three-finger swipe gestures on the Touch Bar to adjust volume and brightness and it works great!

I was wondering if it's possible to have these gestures work globally, but keep the actual buttons and everything from the default Touch Bar configurations for various apps. I want to be able to control brightness and volume from anywhere with the gestures, but keep the buttons from all the apps!


#2

unfortunately that's currently not possible. There is no API to get these touches when the system touchbar is displayed. (there is a way but it is very demanding on the cpu, and can cause various issues, thus I can't integrate it currently)

Bro how did you set it up ?

I have the gestures installed but nothing works, when I'm trying to use it, it turns into a thin strip and nothing else is happening..

Cheers

Like this should work:
