🆕 [v3.6.9] AquaTouch – The Powerful Touch Bar Redesign.

fn is also not that silky reliable for me as switching the bar is something BTT struggles with (technically difficult). I find it far more stable than the control strip touch button though. so, i tend to use fn even if it needs a little encouragement sometimes. and yeah, its a toggle, so tap should open it, and tap again should close it

The thing you see when holding is the system setting "Press and hold FN key to.. (and you set it to expand control strip)

v3.6.5 Hotfixes

Recently in v3.6.4

3.6.5 is a hotfix release for the recent 3.6.4.
Check out the recent new features in AquaTouch! ➔

Hi @yuuiko !

That Hotfix seems smoother indeed.

  • Are you planning in implementing the display of the cover - artist - display in the touchbar ? For Apple Music maybe ?
  • What are the purpose of the like and dislike button in Apple Music ?
  • I think it would be nice to add a button to simply add a music to the library (equivalent to the "+" in Apple Music)

Cheers !

My Youtube bar is not working on Safari. I've set up the configuration, but it does not recognize.


Either set your system language to english, or disable the tutorial:

For Safari:

For Chrome:

You'll need to disable the tutorial every time AQT is updated if you do so

Disabling the setup wizard has resolved. Thanks. You do a great job.

Hi, my Bluetooth widget is showing disconnected while the headphone successfully connected.

for the next update release could you make a shortcut or trackpad gesture to make it more easy to open the new control center in big sur? thanks!

Hi @yuuiko, just want to know if there is any way to hide the AQT icon on the macOS control strip? I have disabled 'Show BetterTouchTool Icon in Control Strip', but it is still there.

I want to remove it because I've created a keyboard shortcut to change to the BTT Touch Bar, and never use the button, and the control strip would just look nicer without it.

A solution would be helpful, thanks!

Hi, what about localization in my own language (italian)? I tried to replace all the apps names in the "unsupported app" group, and in each of the affected groups, but still in BTT I see the message "your custom touchbar is hidden" for apps that change name in different languages (all Apple's ones, i.e. Notes, Calculator, Calendar, Messagges, etc.)

Would it be relatively easy to substitute app names strings with variables, which could be tuned accordingly?


Currently looking into the issues, though its proving to be a tricky fix with the changes in big sur. Stay informed about updates


Not sure how much that would benefit as you'd use your mouse to interact with things up there anyway. Might see if I can get most of its functionality directly in the Touch Bar.


In every app there is a "Control Strip Button" trigger, removing these and disabling the option you found in the settings should do the trick


Unfortunatley BetterTouchTool doesn't have such a feature to add localisation to presets, this would be a great idea for @Andreas_Hegenberg though it might be a big feature request. Currently to support different languages I'd need to release completely seperate presets.

That's done it, thanks!

just realized that the new alpha version of BTT allows you to set a trackpad gesture for the control center in Big sur. I'm currently using the M1 Macbook Pro and it seems as though their may be a bug regarding connecting the Airpods. When i press to connect the airpods pro on the touchbar the battery percent never shows and the "Airpods Pro Not Connected" shows even when the airpods connect

I haven't noticed this issue with web browsers recently, but I definitely am noticing it with media players. VLC, Spotify, and Music.app won't fully quit if I have AquaTouch expanded when I try. Instead they close all windows and the application hides itself.

Some further fixes have been made since the latest AquaTouch update, but I'm not sure if I got all of them. If it does come up note the specific group/touch bar screen that was open because that would be helpful

@yuuiko I'm testing out BTT for the first time and I really appreciate your AQT preset! I tried searching this forum but haven't found anything specific to help me so I thought I'd ask you directly. Is there any way to configure AQT to keep the QuickStrip widgets displayed until they are explicitly closed? What I'm trying to accomplish is that once I start up the Music app widget I want it to stay put and not go away when I switch apps. Only when I explicitly close the widget do I want the default behavior of displaying the app specific Touch Bar to resume. Is this even possible?
