Describe the bug
My trackpad has been acting up. Weirdly only the zoom function is affected. The zoom will simply not work in applications sometimes, then I would come to my computer later and it would magically work again. After a lot of digging around, I found out that this is a known issue with the application called Magnets, but only if you have Magnets run on startup. A fix for Magnets is to just put your computer to sleep and wake it back up.
BTT's Snap Areas feature is similar to Magnets, and I have BTT run on startup. So I put my computer to sleep when the issue came up, and like magic, the zoom feature is working again!
Here is a reddit thread where someone mentions the Magnets app issue: https://www.reddit.com/r/MacOS/comments/7udwht/pinch_to_zoom_randomly_stops_working/
Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
Magic Trackpad 2, and Wacom Touch
- Type of Mac: iMac Late 2015
- macOS version: 10.14.1
- BetterTouchTool version: 2.660
Additional information (e.g. StackTraces, related issues, screenshots, workarounds, etc.):
Putting the Mac to sleep works. I haven't tried not having it launch on restart yet, but I suspect that would also remedy the issue.
