Bluetooth keyboard will not follow mouse focus?

9 posts in this topic

New Synergy Pro user here. Rock solid Server/Client connections. However I'm unable to resolve partial functionality with Synergy pro on two macs running 10.11.6

Bluetooth keyboard will not follow mouse focus to client machine. Any ideas?

I should note that I have the same functionality from a wired usb keyboard. Keyboard operations stick to the server mac.

Do you mean that you have both wired and wireless (Bluetooth) keyboard connected on that Mac server at the same time? Is that a MacBook you're using?

Not a macbook. MacPro 5,1 systems. Shut off bluetooth and rebooted with usb keyboard to trouble shoot. No luck.

Any errors shown on the log that might be related to that?

"WARNING: Cursor may not be visible" is the only log message that pops up.

I worked through this thread with no luck. What was the culprit? What OSX apps are know to hijack keyboard commands?

Mostly VMs or some password plugins and apps. Do you have last pass or something similar @Boneyard?
