πŸ†• [v3.6.9] AquaTouch – The Powerful Touch Bar Redesign.

@yuuiko
Hi Yuuiko!
Must say i really love AQT and you should work at apple.
One thing i wonder and please tell me if i missed it somewhere.
I want the default safari youtube scrubber in chromes youtube in AQT. Is there a way to implement it? No need for the exact same one but just a scrubber function would be game changer.
Stay awesome!

Very nice. I see I still have some learning to do when it comes to BTT. But I'm not sure I like the compact Control Strip, how do I revert it? The tutorial didn't say how, just where.

@DirtyPhil
I can't implement some features like Apple becuase of MacOS Limitations on BTT.

Trying to get one working for youtube in chrome, but its taking a while as it's a difficult process


@syntex123
Head to System Preferences β†’ Keyboard, then hit the "Customise Control Strip" button near the bottom of the window! I should add this to the instructions.

Anyone else having serious difficulty getting the sidecar button to work? I've confirmed the apostrophe is not the issue and I do have the screen mirroring icon displayed in my menubar. Yet, when I press the sidecar button under the QuickControls, it fails to connect and I get this message:


Very frustrating, so any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

highly likley a big sur bug since they switched up the menubar

Noted for bugfix though not sure if it's possible now that the sidecar menu is different now

If it helps at all, it looks like the Airplay menubar shortcut has been changed to a Display shortcut:


Is there a way so I can edit the script to simply use "Display" instead of "Airplay" or whatever term is used to search the menubar? Would love to just find a quick workaround until an update is released, which will prob leverage the new Control Center menu button, huh? Thanks again!

EDIT: Also, I found this sidecar script forum, which provides this fixed script for Big Sur:

set iPadName to "iPad"

tell application "System Events"
	tell application process "ControlCenter"
		repeat with tElement in menu bar items of menu bar 1
			if (exists attribute "AXTitle" of tElement) then
				if value of attribute "AXTitle" of tElement contains "Display" then
					set theBar to tElement
					tell theBar
						click
					end tell
					set tElements to entire contents of window 1
					repeat with i from 1 to count of tElements
						set tElement to item i of tElements
						if (title of tElement contains iPadName) then
							tell tElement
								click
							end tell
							exit repeat
						end if
					end repeat
					tell theBar
						click
					end tell
					exit repeat
				end if
			end if
		end repeat
	end tell
end tell

i've previously tried to access the new menu but it seems to be structured differently and locked up as a result. Will try that script but may take some time as my university just started again and i'm quite busy, sorry!

Request if possible for the next release. is it possible to make the same Youtube group web widget that you're able to open in Aquatouch when you visit the youtube website be used for the youtube standalone app on M1 Mac Big Sur. I use an app called "Clicker for Youtube" which is a youtube standalone app without the ads

Thanks a lot for the awesome work <3 i love it, I bought the BTT via AquaTouch.
There somethings i would really love to have/fix:

  • The cpu temp not working on M1, I know that iStatus gem is outdated but would be cool to find an alternative.
  • Brave browser widgets (Youtube, Google docs, Gmail).
    Thank you so much you are the best :slight_smile: :love_letter:.

PS: I will be one of the first contributors to join, when you make this project open source.

can the calendar quick strip support things 3?

Any chance we will see support for Todoist/Fantastical in the quick strip instead of Reminders and Calendar?

Hi all! Sorry for absence as I've been busy with other matters latley.


@Duval_Barrett, @RNZ
I don't have an M1 available for me to test these things, so it is very hard to get things working.

@RNZ It is already open source, its just a bit hard to collaboratively code because of BTT's all-in-one preset file. If you cook up anything let me know and I can merge it in


@Haiming @nickgurney
Looking into support for other calendar apps, but i'd probably need to buy them first.

I managed to find a glimmer of free time to see what I can improve for you all. Here's what I've got in this update:

Not sure where @yuuiko would see it, so I put a copy here.

Bug: No scrollbar in Setup Instructions & AquaTouch Guide #85

There is no scrollbar in Setup instructions (the First Tim Setup page) and AquaTouch Guide (the column on the right-hand side) therefore I could only see the 1st fold of their contents. I can not scroll using 2-fingers or use up/down arrow keys to do so as well.

Could you provide links to the 2 documents so that I can at least finish the set up and starting using this amazing tool? :slight_smile:

(screenshots & details about versions availabe at github, see link above)

Excited to try but when I tap the β“΅ Setup Instructions button on the touch bar, it takes me to a buggy url and then BTT crashes.

Any ideas why?

(Macbook pro 2020 m1 // Big Sur)

This Touch Bar add-on crashes my MacBook , stops the ongoing time machine backups and also any files those are being copied on the Network shares.

It also causes shutdown problems , during booting the accessibility for apps get blocked randomly.

Too many issues , please look into the same.

Overall I do not recommend this add on at all , I may give it try later when the developer fixes the under laying crash issues , for time being switching back to Golden Choas which is one other trouble maker , but atleast It is stable.

this is odd, havent seen much reports to this extreme level.

Are you using M1?

No 2016 , i9 16 inch 2020 - MacBook Pro.

Ever since I had this add on , I only have problems. Though it is faster when compared to golden chaos , but very unstable. I still prefer this add on as this gives me per application Touch Bar shortcuts , which golden choas doesn’t.

A request you need more testing and fix it this add on is a gem which Apple Missed it..

Do you know when / in what app these crashes happen? I'd really like to fix this, but I'm not seeing issues to that extreme.

hmmmm most app layouts don't have much applescript happening. Finding out which UI layout this happens would be most useful.

I'm aware on first initialisation BTT bogs down the whole system, but this should only happen once at first install and for not very long. Could it be that it didn't install properly?
