I manage to get the connection working but I fail to get the "copy and paste, drag and drop function" between computers.

I'm having the same problem, I'm using Synergy Pro on 2 Windows 10 computers and in the "configure server\advanced server settings" of Synergy I have "Enable drag and drop file transfers" and "Enable clipboard sharing" both selected.

Hi @Tiffy and @jshabetler. When you try to copy and paste what are you seeing in the logs for both machines? IF you're not seeing anything, please try to set the logging level on both machines to Debug1 and try doing the same thing again.

@Paul Suarez I'm not having the problem with the copy and paste but for the drag and drop I'm getting these two messages in the debug list:

From server computer: [2017-07-25T18:28:21] ERROR: drop file failed: drop target is empty

From client computer: [2017-07-25T18:25:45] DEBUG: failed to get drag file name from OLE

They don't happen at the same time, it's only one or the other

@Paul Suarez I don't see any error message, just say leaving and entering the screen.

[2017-07-28T00:50:35] INFO: leaving screen

[2017-07-28T00:51:38] INFO: entering screen

I see. Sorry for the inconvenience @Tiffy We are still doing some changes for this feature to work. Although we have Synergy 2.0 early access Beta that has this function working now. Would you want to try it?

Dear Paul,

I would like to confirm are you meaning copy and paste function on my current version do not support until the 2.0 comes out?

If that so may I know will there any pop up for update. Do you know when will be stable version will be public?

Hi @Tiffy. I'm sorry but it might really take time. Please check on the quoted comment below.

Hey, I'm sorry the drag and drop feature and the scroll buttons aren't working for you.

We're working on improving these features but it'll take a while (probably not until next year). If you'd like a refund please email us: [email protected]

Yep I'm also getting this problem, I can't drag or drop or paste. When I try and drag and drop it just gives be the DEBUG: failed to get drag file name from OLE on the server but nothing on the client.

Is the drag and drop function suppose to work with any file? or just text files?

I can't get the copy and paste between computers to function either.  Shouldn't this work since it's advertised on the front page?

The main reason I purchased this yesterday was I needed Drag and Drop (or Copy/Paste) functionality (Windows 7 to Windows 7).  You should remove the advert from your front page if it does not work.
