Hotkeys not working

19 posts in this topic

Hi - My setup is a Macbook Pro (server) using an additional monitor and Macbook screen with a Windows 8 Client. I am trying to setup a hotkey (alt+3) to switch to to Windows 8 Client from the Mac. Anytime I'm on the Macbook or add. monitor, nothing happens (debug log below). I found this site: [url]https://github.com/symless/synergy/issues/3705[/url] and it states that hotkeys don't work on a Mac server. Is that correct? If so, this makes Synergy useless to me. [2016-03-06T07:56:42] DEBUG: registered hotkey Alt+\u00a3 (id=00a3 mask=0004) as id=1 [2016-03-06T07:56:42] DEBUG: could not map hotkey id=ef14 mask=0000 [

Hello David, Can you test to do a different hotkey setup to see if that works? It might be that the keybindings does not work and in that case just add a comment to the issue and hopefully the developers can have a look asap. If you have a solution/patch for it then it is also welcome to the github page.

Hi Somnium - I've tried multiple different keys and actions, but nothing works. Any other tips are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I'm having a similar issue. I was hoping to create a setup similar to how Parallels works. So, I could continue to use the same keyboard shortcuts for Mac, when the Keyboard/Mouse were on my Windows machine. Setup (Windows - Client) (Mac - Server)

Same issue here. Is anyone taking this stuff seriously? This has been a problem for ages.

Just throwing my hat into the ring, I too cannot get hotkeys to work using the mac client and server setup. I'm running osx 10.11 and synergy 1.8.2.stable.

Also having this issue - turning up logging to Debug suggests that Mac server isn't catching any of the hotkeys

I'm suggesting a fork. Or a third party build to link to on this page and github until our paid support decides to include the patch.

Running Mac OS 10.12.5 and synergy-v1.8.8-stable MacOSX-x86_64 as server. Hotkeys do not work on the server.  They only work on my Windows client.  I'm fairly disappointed this has been a problem for so long.

I'm running Mac OS 10.12.6 with Synergy Version 1.8.8-stable-25a8cb2 as server. I have a Debian client, where hotkeys work. On the Mac server no hotkeys work at all, not even if I set it to a single characted such as "a". 

I thought it was because I'm using Karabiner to modify keys, but even after completely turning this off this problem persists. It also seems that this issue is affecting alot of other people in this post.

When can we expect a fix to this?
