OS X 10.11.4 Client - Shift key failing to pass to Parallels

8 posts in this topic

Just noticed this behaviour today after upgrading earlier. Shift works in OS X but not recognized when passed to Parallels and Windows 8.1 on client. Tried both 1.7.6 and 1.8 Beta for Client and Server both. Any suggestions? [b]Setup[/b] Windows 10 Pro Server (Wired) OS X 10.11.4 Client (Wired & Wireless)

The exact same issue happened to me as well. I have been trying different configurations as well. It works when I install Synergy onto my Parallels Win 7 image and set it up as a client. However, this is obviously not ideal since the client it technically running on 2 different machines. To me, this means that the problem has to lay within the Synergy for Mac OS X 10.11. Hopefully we can get a fix for this.

I have this issue also, however rolling back to 1.7.5 does not seem to fix the issue. I'm running Windows 10 wired server and Mac OSX wifi client.

I've resorted to a USB cable that i swap to make OS X the server and Windows 10 the client. It's not ideal but until there's a fix, I need to keep working. :(

Well interestingly my shift button just started working. I saw a Parallels notification that an update was on going, but didn't catch if it was a Windows Update or a Parallels update, but my shift button now works :) My Parallels version is Desktop 11 for Mac 11.1.3 (32521) I'll check if Windows did some updates later.

Thanks, I just converted my Mac to the Server. All is working as advertised; however, my Windows box is my primary so it would still be nice to get this fixed.

Strange.

Ok, so oddly my shift button stopped working again :? Re-started Synergy and my Mac/Parallels but nothing seems to get it working again. Let's hope it kicks in to life randomly like last time. Any fix would be greatly appriciated as this is a major issue for me as I'm sure it is for many others.

please please please correct this issue, its making work very difficult as I send a majority of my emails from the client/parallels. Its driving me crazy[b][u]1[/u][/b] that's what is looks like on the Mac, you know, because the '1' kry doesn't shift to the '!'. ;)
