Great news! Will the source code be made available? Right now I'm getting a 404 error when attempting to download. I use Arch Linux so it's a lot easier to build then trying to extract from debs or RPMs.

Thanks

This is awesome. Totally solved the clipboard bug, what a relief (MacBook Pro server / Windows 10 client). Great work guys, keep up the good work!

I was so happy that a new version with so many bugfixes has been released...

BUT...

it seems... the image of 1.7.6 for mac 10.11 is damaged on your server? :| :| :|
I tried to download it again and again and again, but always got an error "image data corrupted" :cry: :cry: :cry:

That chrome clipboard bugfix is a lifesaver, no more pasting into notepad++ and copying it again for me!... or so I thought... Unfortunately it comes with a few new random bugs and I am going to have to downgrade to 1.7.5 again (I think that is what I was running previously).

For some reason Photoshop CC 2015 occasionally has its selector box disappear as soon as I select something. When it does this I also cant resize the with the crop tool. Unsure what would cause something like this.
Also when I am playing Stardew Valley (steam game), my keyboard input does not work to move the character, and mouse does not let me click anything. Am able to press a key to display a menu.

I'd be quite happy to blame both of those programs for causing the problems but it only appeared when I updated to 1.7.6, and as soon as I stop the synergy service the problems go away. :cry:

Win10 Pro x64 server, OSX 10.11.3 MacMini client.

In Windows 10 the mouse scroll wheel stops working and you can't select anything from a pop up box. As soon as you shut down the client server, all works again. Any chance of looking into this?

Cheers.

Thanks for the update - is there any news on if this issue for Mac users is being addressed? viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1165

Currently, 1.7.6 still exhibits the same behavior between Macs on 10.11.2/10.11.3 - the keyboard connectivity between machines is unusable.

Thanks!

I'm also having mouse/keyboard issues with Adobe Photoshop and InDesign. This is on the local system, not a remote. Can't right click certain menus, cannot drag tools such as eraser, can click to erase but drag does not work. Also weird keyboard issues like ALT key not responding, etc. As soon as I stop Synery service everything works fine.

Windows 7 Pro 64 system.
