Drag ´n drop files

Postby Albert Winter » Mon Dec 28, 2015 3:56 am

Could someone please give me a detailed description on how to drag and drop files from one pc to another one?

I use 2 computers with Windows 10 x64. Mouse and keyboard control work fine with synergy ver 1.7.5 (as it already did with version 1.5).

File transfer neither works with copy and paste (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V) nor with drag and drop.

Last I heard it was a fairly new feature (as of early December).
I have been able to use it intermittently, currently it is not working.
I'm more than happy to help test and provide feedback if needed.

I purchased because of this feature. I cant get it to work either. Is Synergy going to fix this?

I purchased this software yesterday. My drag and drop of files is not working. Can anyone shed some light on how to make this work? Thank you.

I have the same issue.
Using 1.7.5.
I am able to copy / paste url link, images copied onto clipboard.
Can't seem to drag files between by windws 7 server and Mac OSX 10.11 macbook.

Any help would be appreciated.

I really hope this can be resolved quickly. Drag & Drop file support was one of the reasons I decided to get the pro version.
At least remove this feature as being present from the front page website if it does not work.

I'd like to echo the sentiments, I thought this feature was working when I purchased the app, now I'm beginning to wonder if I should have looked around a bit more.

I sent an email to [email protected]
The email reads as follows:
I just purchased Synergy Basic for the **one and only reason** of moving files between computers as stated in your website as ”Drag and drop files from one computer
to another (Windows and Mac OS X).” - As seen here: http://synergy-project.org

Well, there is a growing forum thread where many of us are wondering where this feature is and how to use it as it’s clearly not available as marketed/advertised.
- Link to forum thread: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1120

- Please, send Mr. Bolton into the forums to chat with us about this.
Thank You,

I have the follwing setup: server win8.1, client macosx 10.11.

D&d of files is working from win -> mac most of the time but not 100% reproducible. Seems to be a matter of how fast you move your mouse and where the windows taskbar is located.

Case 1: Taskbar on the left side of the screen, client on the left side, so I have to drag over the taskbar. If I move the mouse slowly to the edge of my screen, I see a flickering of the synergy symbol on the taskbar and d&d then works. If I move my mouse quite fast, d&d doesn't work most of the time. It also doesn't work, when I drag over an app icon on the taskbar.

Case 2: Taskbar is on bottom, client on the left side. This seems to work much better. I can move my mouse very fast, and most of the time, d&d works as expected.

I was not able to do a d&d of files in the opposite direction, ie. from mac client to windows server.
