Is there a Fix for Scaling and Synergy

OS: Windows 7
Setup: PC (server) + laptop (client)

It took me a while to figure out why my cursor would stick to my client's bottom-right corner.  I tried many of the suggestions, but the only one that worked was setting my scaling to 100%.  I tend to sit far away from my monitors and don't want to strain my eyes just so I can use Synergy.  I know this is a pretty common issue.

Is there an older version that doesn't have this issue? or perhaps another work around?

We would like to know more on this issue @Nitsude. Please provide more details about your machines (OS, 32/64 bit, Synergy version installed, connected to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi, specify which one is the server). Also, post a screenshot of both machine's Synergy interface and the Server Configuration interface on your server machine.

I suppose it doesn't hurt to post the Settings for each too just in case there is a potential problem there.

Have you tried relative mouse moves for this (server configuration)?

Thank you for all your help so far Paul.  Just tried using relative mouse moves, but it didn't seem to make any difference.  As soon as I load a game and attempt to move to client the cursor again moves to bottom-right corner.

How about trying to press scroll lock before moving to the client?

Interesting change -- must have been through a system restart.  Scroll lock now prevents the cursor from moving from screen to screen.  Will continue to use Synergy and see how it reacts.
