Any way we can remap the meta/alt keys to be the other way around?

The other option that'd be nice is the ability to stop Synergy from taking focus when I move from one screen to the other (it was an option in the old version like Admin mode or something?). For example if Chrome is open and I move over to the other computer, chrome will lose focus until I move back.

Thank you, that thought had not occurred to me yet, I am sure I would have noticed it when actually using it for work, not simply playing around with it. Also the second point you make there, I thought I was seeing it behave strangely but shrugged it off to being tired. Guess it was stealing focus unlike the v1.

One solution could be to somehow register Synergy as a virtual USB or BT keyboard, so that you can select and change the modifier keys natively in OSX. My Mac Mini has no keyboard, so therefore I cannot use the OSX Change Modifier Keys feature - nothing is saved because there is no keyboard (Even if i hit OK).

I love that idea! That could not only add more power to it, but even permit extra keys and other things from 'special' keyboards to be mapped properly.

Yes!

My use-case is that I'm on a Mac server with Windows client, and when I want to copy/paste between the two systems, I have to use cmd-c/v on one and ctrl-c/v on the other. Makes copying/pasting between the two really awkward.

Sadly we couldn't squeeze the key swapping feature into 2.0.0, but we'll try to get this into 2.0.1 or soon after.

Anyway, get the latest version here: Synergy-v2.0.0-beta5
