Adding a shortcut for "⌘+P" or most other letters (different than P) just works fine. However, if I want to register a shortcut for "⌘+¨" or "⌘+^" BetterTouchTool prohibits to register this as an input. It aborts and plays the sound for unacceptable input (system sound).

What can you suggest to record a shortcut for these keys? Is there a way to edit a file somewhere?

  • Are you using the latest version (2.0.2, as of Jan 31). I could register both of the keypresses you mentioned. Don't know if this is new or not, though. – Kent Feb 1 '17 at 0:38
  • Yes I'm using 2.0.2. Did you register them as a shortcut or a key sequence? – ndrizza Feb 1 '17 at 0:43
  • I've just seen that i can register these combinations as a key sequence, but not as a shortcut. – ndrizza Feb 1 '17 at 0:46
  • I could register ⌘+¨ and ⌘+^ as a Shortcut in the Keyboard preferences, and as a test, had it trigger another keyboard shortcut (just "a") Both worked as expected. – Kent Feb 1 '17 at 0:51
  • Alright, do you have a US-EN keyboard? Mine is swiss - I don't know if that's the issue. I'll try with an external keyboard. – ndrizza Feb 1 '17 at 0:56

Apparently, this is an unsolvable issue:
