Shift/Ctrl and other special keys are not working on Parallels12

8 posts in this topic

Environment 
Synergy 2.0 beta 5 on both sides
Server(F12): Ubuntu 16.04
Client: macOS 10.12.6 Sierra
VM software on client: Parallels 12
VM guest OS: Windows 10

Yep, it seems quite complicated environment.
Anyway, I used keyboard/mouse connected to Ubuntu-16.04-installed PC. While I'm doing Windows-specific jobs inside Parallels which is installed on my Macbook, I found that shift, ctrl and other special keys are not working inside the Parallels. Which means I cannot write capital letters, copy/paste, open the start menu with Window key, and so many other things inside the VM application.

In short, cannot write capital letters/copy/paste inside Parallels.
Are there any other people suffering those situations? And do you have plans to solve the problem?

Thanks,

Ah, so you are! Sorry. Looks like a bug then. Do you need a refund?

Yes, unfortunately. I can't say when we'll be able to prioritize it, sorry.

Oh, that's somewhat disappointing... Thank you for replying. Anyway, I will not refund synergy because you made such interesting s/w, I'm expecting more improvement on the release-version, and I hope the bug is prioritized someday later on.;)

Prioritization depends on how many people report the bug. Right now we don't hear much about that bug sadly.
