Great tutorial, thanks for putting it together. It's the one app I have to have on my Mac, especially with the smaller screens. I purchased it as soon as the beta version was released, it's a must have especially with the wider spacing in Big Sur. I switched back to the previous OS spacing as there are far too many to fit on the screen. I have just three that I use all of the time with the rest hidden, it's too cluttered otherwise.

Thanks, Alan - I couldn't agree more! I'm bummed that for my production system I'm stuck back on Catalina. I LOVE Bartender 4 and I'm annoyed I have to use Bartender 3. Thanks for the kind words as well.
