Touch Bar takes way too long to switch to App-specific setup when using CMD+Tab

Describe the bug
When you do CMD+Tab, it takes too long for the Touch Bar to change its setups between applications, sometimes seconds of delay.

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

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: 2017 15" MacBook Pro 2.9Ghz
  • macOS version: 10.13.6
  • BetterTouchTool version: 2.717 (1027)

would be great if you'd test the latest alpha. There seems to have been a bug in some systems with the previous feedings that could cause this. It should be fixed in the latest alpha version. (get via "check for alpha version updates")

Nope, it doesn't fix it...Now this pretty much happens all the time, now the Touch Bar even refuses to change from application to application until I "refresh" it by pressing CMD or any other modifier. For people who CMD+tab a ton, this doesn't look good. Hope you get to fixing it soon! Great app other than that! You actually made me want to use the Touch Bar.

weird so far the alpha fixed the issue for all other people I talked to. Are you sure you updated? Which version does it show?

It shows the latest alpha version, 2.725 (1035). I'm going to need to find a program that will automatically press any modifier button once I switch applications for a workaround. How can I help you solve this? What do I send you?

I have the same issue on 2.725, no difference when updating to 2.732, really frustrating, it worked great previously. Is there any system information that would help in solving this?

Unfortunately I can't reproduce the issue here. But maybe go to the about tab in BTT and click the "Export Debug Information" button. This will create a folder called BetterTouchToolDebug that you can send to

//edit actually I think this might be a bug in the latest macOS version not giving accurate app switch information. I think I might have a workaround, would be great if you'd try 2.733

Wow! Super! Updating to 2.733 actually fixed it! Also I wasn't on Mojave, just 10.13.6, but still you managed to fix it somehow. Thanks, this was driving me a little nuts.

Solved for me too using the latest version! :slight_smile: Missed the notifications for this post, and forgot about it until now. Thanks for the help!
