Hyper key with BTT but not caps lock?

I see how to enable caps lock for hyper using BTT, but I already have my caps lock set to control, and muscle memory is far too engrained at this point to change that. I’d love to use a different key, perhaps the rightmost command or option key on my Logitech keyboard. I can’t find a way to do that with BTT, but my knowledge of the tool is limited. Is it possible or do I need to turn to a different solution (such as Karabiner Elements)?


As far as I can tell, it appears that BTT only works with Caps Lock. I could not see how to set it to any other key.

I did find this from @MacSparky:

In which he writes in part, “BetterTouchTool has added the a new feature that lets you map the hyper key combination to any key (including caps lock).”

So maybe he could add to this discussion.

I use Karabiner, although I use Caps Lock as Hyper.

You can set it to anything via Karabiner rules:

If none of these presets suit you, you can download one and modify the karabiner.json file for the key that you want.

Thanks, everyone. I’ve recently swapped out my HHKB Pro2 for a logitech keyboard with an astounding number of keys :slight_smile: , including a numpad. I might use the extra key real-estate to set up some KB conflict palettes before I install another tool.
