Different keyboard layouts

9 posts in this topic

Does any one know if using different keyboard layouts with synergy is possible? 

Recently begun my quest to teach myself programmer dvorak and when ever I use qwerty it feels like I'm forgetting what little skill in dvorak I have. This would likely also be a problem for people who use non English layouts.

If this is something that can already be done let me know.

Synergy 2 has the same problems as Synergy 1 when it comes to keyboard layouts. We probably won't be tackling this until 2.3 or 2.4 late next year.

Please let us know if you'd like a refund.

What are the chances that a popular feature request would quicken this development? No refund needed, I still love synergy in its current state. Might even attempt to create my own solution later... Although by the time I get around to it you might already have it done!

We prioritise the most popular requests first. Unfortunately, this isn't one of them.

Hope we don't have to wait that long for modifier key swap (Cmd/Ctrl/Alt/etc.).  Is that a higher priority?

I second moving up modifier key remapping.  I use Alt for Command on my Mac all the time and it was a function in Synergy 1...thinking of reverting until this is resolved.

Also second moving up the key remapping functionality. I needed to downgrade back to synergy v1 for this reason.

Alternatively you could just make that default behavior... I suspect no one likes having command mapped to the windows key.

@Nick Bolton How do we vote for requests?

+1.  Perhaps just a couple different versions?   One for PC users: Ctrl => CMD.   Are there any 3rd party work-around that do will do it?
