Chrome has introduced a new feature requiring a weird 2-finger tap gesture on a particular button. It's an awkward gesture and difficult to time it right.

Is there any way to make ctrl-tap act as if two fingers had been pressed on the trackpad? Or some other solution that would avoid the need to use 2-finger tap for this.

BetterTouchTool is a great app that can help you with this.

You can install this by going into their website and download or by installing it with homebrew cask here

Now just for an example, I've posted an image of something you could do with it better touch tool

  • Good tool - thanks. Only downside is it doesn't support ctrl-click anywhere. The gesture dropdown requires a specific position like top-left. So the best choice was just to use a corner with no modifier (ie no ctrl, just tap the corner).
