What’s New

Version 2.445:

  • This is a pretty powerful update. It's also the first update run by my new company folivora.AI GmbH (folivora are sloth, and the ai is a specific kind of sloth :-)).
  • Predefined actions: Added new powerful, fully customizable floating WebView/HTML menu. This allows you to create whatever kind of overlay menu you want with HTML+CSS, and it allows you to trigger any BetterTouchTool action you want.
  • Other Triggers: You can now specify "named triggers" in the other tab in BetterTouchTool. These can be triggered using the predefined action "Trigger Named Trigger".
  • TouchBar: Repeat Rate & Repeat Delay when keeping a button pressed can now be set.
  • TouchBar: The Script widgets can now return either a string result, or a JSON object with the following keys (all optional): {"text":"newTitle", "icon_data":"base64_icon_data", "icon_path":"file_path_to_new_icon", "background_color": "255,85,100,255"}
  • TouchBar: Option to trigger a "named trigger" on long-press of a button or widget.
  • TouchBar: Script Widgets and Buttons can now be updated using Apple Script, Custom URL Schemes or the new integrated Webserver.
  • TouchBar: Fixed various "jumping" issues
  • TouchBar: You can now activate "Always run on becoming visible" for Script widgets. This will execute the script everytime the widget becomes visible, otherwise it will only run in the defined interval (unless no value has been received so far, then it will always run on becoming visible)
  • TouchBar: Script Widget Configuration dialogue can now be resized and supports cmd+z
  • General: Release notes are now accessible from the BetterTouchTool menubar icon
  • Predefined actions: The Move mouse to position action is now much more powerful. It e.g. allows you to move the mouse relative to the default button, relative to all window corners or to the active element in a window.
  • Predefined actions: "Run Terminal Command" now has two variants: one that blocks further execution until the command has finished, and one that runs the command asynchronously (as it was before)
  • Predefined actions: Added predefined action "quit application under cursor"
  • Predefined actions: Fixed issue with "Show Menubar in Context Menu"
  • Predefined actions: Fixed issue with "type text" action
  • General: Added integrated Webserver (disabled by default). This allows you to create super customizable HTML based dashboards (e.g. for use on tablets or android phones). Also it is great in combination with the new floating menu action.
  • General: Completely changed the Apple Script runner service to use significantly lower amounts of memory.
  • Other Triggers: Fixed issue with "Double-Click Window Titlebar" trigger.
  • Fixed some other bugs
