Hot key switching

3 posts in this topic

Is there a way to setup Synergy 2 like Synergy 1 where you can flip screens with a hot key. For example i have my original setup to use the Alt+1-3 keys to change between my 3 machines. I do this because on one machine I play video games and when bump the edge of the screen while in a game, it will flip me to my other machines. Having it set to only switch when on the key commands prevents this issue from happening.

 

Here is my config file i use for Synergy 1.8. What can I do to get this same method to work on Synergy 2?

 

 

# Synergy configuration file

# screen definitions
section: screens
        iMac27:
        iMac21:
        PC:
end

# screen orientation/links
section: links
        iMac27:
        iMac21:
        PC:
end

# Options
section: options
    heartbeat = 1000
    relativeMouseMoves = true
    screenSaverSync = true
    win32KeepForeground = true
    clipboardSharing = true
#
        keystroke(alt+1) = switchToScreen(iMac21)
        keystroke(alt+2) = switchToScreen(iMac27)
        keystroke(alt+3) = switchToScreen(PC)
end
